Bit of a Sticky Wicket
« on: March 22, 2007, 05:53:02 PM »

Someone was upset with the loss.........


http://www.cnn.com/2007/W.../cricket.death/index.html

Police announced Tuesday that Woolmer's death was suspicious, two days after he was found unconscious in his hotel room. Woolmer, 58, was declared dead at a hospital soon after he was found.

Initial media reports indicated he died of a heart attack.

The tragedy came less than 24 hours after his team were beaten by underdogs Ireland in one of the biggest shocks in World Cup cricket history.

Cricket?  That's a sport I've only heard of.  Anybody care to take the time to explain it to me?  Or are you gonna send me back to wikipedia again?

It's best you do your own research first. IMO it would be quite complicated to explain in a thread.

It's front page news over here.
As soon as Ireland beat Patkistan, everybody suspected "money and bookies" were involved.
If "My Imran Khan", Love Love Love , was still captain, none of this would have happened!!!!

From the Beeb:

Quote
Asad Mahmud Khan, a traffic patrol officer on M-1 motorway to Peshawar still can't believe team's Saturday defeat. "What can you say? They lost to Ireland, of all the people. Bob died of shame."

Holy chit those people take their cricket seriously.   Hide
