Deconstructing the gentleman's game

Bob Woolmer (1948 - 2007) R.I.P.

It was a sad way to go. Alone in a hotel room, in a foreign land, with the shame of defeat hanging over the head. Certainly not the death that should befall anyone.

His passing only serves to remind us that beneath all the hoopla and the bluster around cricket, cricketing rivalries and indeed the importance of winning, cricket is still just a game. We forget this from time to time and it's a shame that unfortunate events like this need to act as alarm bells for us.

For Bob Woolmer, born in Kanpur, India... it has been a long journey. And I daresay, having passed on his cricketing knowledge to the various teams he coached, his journey will continue even after his death.

May his soul rest in peace.
