Bob Woolmer R.I.P

I was dead chuffed when Ireland beat Pakistan. Not so happy now.

The coach of Pakistan's national cricket team has died after being found unconscious in his hotel room in Jamaica.

It is not yet clear what caused Bob Woolmer's condition, who was rushed to hospital in a serious condition after collapsing not long before dying.

Just yesterday, Pakistan crashed out of the World Cup after the side's shock defeat by Ireland in the opening round of the competition, prompting angry Pakistan fans to burn effigies in public protests to show their shock at losing.

It is a sad and premature death of one of the best cricket coaches our county game has seen. I would have loved to see him get a chance with England.
