The 2007 Cricket World Cup summed up in quotes

"I would like to sleep on my future as a coach. It's what I do best, what I try to do best. I'm not going to throw away coaching just like that" -- Pakistan coach Bob Woolmer following Pakistan's shock first-round exit on March 17.

"Robert Andrew Woolmer has passed away today and the entire Pakistan team and management are shocked and saddened by his passing" -- team spokesman Pervez Mir on March 18 after Woolmer was declared dead in hospital. His lifeless body was found in his Jamaican hotel room earlier that day.

  • "The pathologist's report states that Mr Woolmer's death was due to asphyxia as a result of manual strangulation. In these circumstances the matter of Mr Robert Woolmer's death is now being treated by the Jamaican police as a case of murder" -- police statement read out on March 22.

    "When somebody is murdered ... it's a very, very scary situation for us. We don't know what's behind the murder. The loss we have suffered has to be investigated and the culprits have to be brought to justice" Pervez Mir.
