THE KwaZulu-Natal Cricket Union is mourning the passing away of KZNCU patron SK Patel.

KZN Cricket president Fa-eez Jaffar spoke to The Witness yesterday of the special qualities that “this true gentleman” brought to the game.

“I grew up with SK and he was a legend in his own right,” said Jaffar. “A valuable servant of cricket in the province, a true gentleman of the game, I looked up to this very generous man as a fatherly figure who had the ability to talk with people in a quiet yet persuasive manner.”

As a player, Patel was recognised as an excellent off-spin bowler.
