    Was watching Junaid Jamshed’s comment on GEO he was saying Bob Woolmer once said to him that he wants to be buried into Pakistan and He feels like a pakistani …so according to JJ pakistanis should try and talk to his family to have him buried in Pak + that he wishes that he had recited kalimah before dying :|

    Losing Woolmer will have long term effects on Pakistani cricket and there is no question about that.

    A wise decision Asma. His loss is far more than losing the run for the world cup…

    goodbye coach…

    though we missed our mark by a mile
    and stole away much of everyone’s smile
    we never realized you would take it so deeply
    for we never were, into the game so deeply
    you did your job well, we were just not upto it
    you did your job well, we were just not ready for it

    it sounds so sudden, so troublesome to us all
    for we never thought our egos will see this fall
    and we never realized you would take it so deeply
    for we never were, into the game so deeply
    you did your job well, we were just not upto it
    you did your job well, we were just not ready for it

    you appoligised to the nation, for what we had done
    you would have silently stepped away, if we had won
    but we never realized you would take it so deeply
    for we never were, into the game so deeply
    you did your job well, coach, we were just not upto it
    you did your job well, we were just not ready for it

    @FARAZ: very rightly expressed.I also felt communication gap,social and language barriers between Bob and the team.There were obvious misunderstandings during matches between his sincerity for the job and the inflated egos of players.May be it is my observation as the opinion is only based on media reportings and reality was somewhat different.This is great loss for cricket and should also remind spectators that what may be just sport and entertainment for them might be more than game for those involved and the intense stress or pressures under which they play.This should never have occured and very very sad thing to happen.
    May his soul rest in peace and my deepest condolences to Bob’s family.

    I think he did suicide! we should take this case to court against the whole Pk Team !

    I dont know why we need Inzy for the World Cup.
    He cant run, field, bowl, jump, only he can stand and do bat little bit,,,,,

    The main cause of losing the World cup is Inzy !

    yes WK, you are right. We should kill Inzy too like we killed Bob by displaying ignorant and wild attitude towards Pakistani team. We should everyone with swords of our words whom we dislike. After all we are proud Pakistanis.

    I felt very bad about his sudden death, i don’t know we should say he died because of heart attack or suicide, the postive point is that he had a heart attack that lead him to his death. This happened just because of Paki Team, but i have noticed one thing that everyone is saying bad words about paki team why???any team can loss, if one team wins then the other team has to lose , so why are these people creating a scene???Stop this please!!!
    Thank You Bob Woolmer, you’ll always be in our hearts, and we’ll remember you in wonderful words.

    It is said that a precious life had to be sacrificed for a doomed cause.As a Pakistani I feel an inner guilt. Possibly those who need to be accountable should now resign and make way for more professional people so that cricket Pakistan can start breathing again. It would be an apt tribute to the departed soul. God Bless Pakistan and may God almighty give strength to Mr. Woolmer’s family to bear this loss

    Well, as if the country’s judicual system was not in enough shambles, it goes the same for Pakistan cricket. The cricket team has been told to stay put at Jamaica and not leave until the police says so. They will be shifted to another hotel after their match with New Zealand tomorrow.
    Meanwhile, the PCB chairman, Naseem Ashraf, along with the entire selection committee has resigned and the chief selector, Wasim Bari, has blamed Inzamam for his ‘sloppy captaincy and leadership’.
    Pakistan is not doing any thing major on the international cricket front until the Twenty 20 world cup in South Africa and they have good people in reserve to build up.
    Yonis Khan is probably going to retain the captaincy and PCB is looking in to hiring former New Zealand cricketer and former Indian Coach, Jon Wright, as a possible replacement for Bob Woolmer. This, of course, is apart from the statement by Imran Khan where by he has offered to help Pakistan Cricket.

    Let’s see how the cookie crumbles :)

    Jamaican Police now have reasons to believe that Bob Woolmer might have been murdered. There are treating his death as ‘suspicious’ after the post-mortem rendedered ‘inconclusive results’
