Middlesex Cricket are desperately saddened to hear of the passing of Chirag Kunverji at the weekend, aged just 31.
Chirag was one of the club’s longest serving Disability cricketers, joining the club at Middlesex’s first ever Disability training session nine years ago, and was an ever present in Middlesex’s Disability squads since.
He quickly established himself in Middlesex’s Super 9’s side and played in every game since joining the club.
He was a stump-to-stump seam bowler who bowled with unerring accuracy and efficiency and always gave his all in the field. Despite having both learning and physical disabilities and being deaf, nothing stopped him playing the sport he loved.
He always had a smile on his face, gave 100% whether on the field or in training, and loved being a part of Middlesex’s Disability side. He was a hugely popular member of the squad, always supported his teammates, and made some wonderful friendships with all he played with.
Everyone at Middlesex Cricket will miss Chirag deeply and our thoughts and prayers are with Chirag’s family and many friends at this extremely sad time.
