The very dark side of Cricket

Writing about web page http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/south_asia/6482981.stm

Breaking news from the Beeb is that the Pakistan Cricket coach, Bob Woolmer, who was found unconscious in his hotel room on Sunday morning and later died in hospital was murdered by ‘manual strangulation.’ This is orders of magnitude uglier than pretty much anything else to happen in the world of Cricket within my memory; that someone should actually be murdered (presumably in connection with the game in some way) in such a vicious way for reasons associated with what is supposed to be a peaceful, civilised game is almost unthinkable. Up until now Woolmer’s death had cast a shadow only over the World Cup, now the entire Cricketing world is in the shade. Obviously Cricket needs to be gone through from top to bottom to examine how tragedies like this can be avoided in the future. A very, very sad day for Cricket.
