Pakistani wins `Statistician of the Year' award

LAHORE, APRIL 11. Pakistan's Abid Ali Kazi has been declared the 'Statistician of the year 2004' by The Association of Cricket Statisticians and Historians, world's only body which documents the game's statistics and history.

The award was announced by the President of the ACS, Eric Midwinter at the 31st Annual General Meeting of the association held in the Long Room, Trent Bridge Cricket Ground, Nottingham, England last week.

The award is aimed at acknowledging outstanding work in the field of cricket statistics and history for specific projects or over a period of time.

The award was initiated in 1987 and by far has been given to 17 statisticians and historians including Bill Frindal, Philip Bailey, Gordon Ross, Richard Lockwood, Victor Issacs and Brian Croudy.

Speaking on the occasion Eric Midwinder said, ``the annual award for the Statistician of the year 2004 is being given to Abid Ali Kazi in recognition of his great services in the compilation of Pakistan Cricket's records and history. The committee and the members of the ACS join with me in congratulating him on this achievement.''

Abid becomes the first Asian and the second non-British person to receive this award. He has extensively researched on the first-class cricket in Pakistan and has already compiled and edited the first five volumes of a monumental publishing endeavour titled First-class Cricket in Pakistan, statistical works that have put into black and white scores and other details of every match played in Pakistan and by Pakistan abroad, from 1947-48 to 1974-75.

Abid, who was instrumental some years ago in publishing the Asian edition of The Cricketer International, is the Pakistan correspondent of The Wisden Cricketers' Almanac, assists a large number of cricket websites at home and abroad, organises sporting events professionally in the capacity as a qualified marketing man and helps out cricket statisticians worldwide whenever they require information regarding Pakistan cricket's history and its scorecards.
