'A sad day for world cricket'

March 20, 2007

March 18, 2007 was a sad day for cricket. Pakistan coach Bob Woolmer died in a Jamaica hospital after being found unconscious in his hotel room the morning after his side's shock defeat to minnows Ireland, that ended their chances of progressing in the World Cup.

The former England batsman was made coach of Pakistan in June 2004, before which he had a successful tenure as coach of South Africa and English county Warwickshire.
