Bob Woolmer R.I.P.

If it wasn’t sad enough that Bob Woolmer, the former Kent and England cricketer and coach of the Pakistani national team, died at the tragically young age of fifty-eight, the sense of loss, most keenly felt of course by his wife and sons, can only have been compounded by the recent, almost unbelievable, revelation that he had been murdered.

It goes without saying that I wish the Jamaican Police every success in their investigation into the circumstances of this appalling crime.

I just hope that they identify those responsible as soon as possible.

When they do, I hope the savages in question are invited to join the Jamaican section of Lord Phillips’ geriatric lifers club. It would be no more than they deserve.
