Bob Woolmer


Indian-born English expatriate sportsman, an international cricketer, professional cricket coach and also a professional commentator. He played in 19 Test matches and 6 One Day Internationals for England and later coached South Africa, Warwickshire and Pakistan.

On 18 March 2007, Woolmer died suddenly in Jamaica, just a few hours after the Pakistan team's unexpected elimination at the hands of Ireland in the 2007 Cricket World Cup. Shortly afterwards, Jamaican police announced that they were opening a murder investigation into Woolmer's death. In November 2007, a jury in Jamaica recorded an open verdict on Woolmer's death, after deciding that there was insufficient evidence of either a criminal act or natural causes.

Sy Scholfield quotes "Woolmer's promise unkept" [1]: "The choc-a-bloc ward witnessed a chaotic yet warm ceremony in which Woolmer was handed over the certificate which revealed he was born at 2.15 am on May 14, 1948. A copy of it is still lying with the hospital authorities."
