Woolmer: no end to speculation
THE MURDER OF Pakistani cricket coach Bob Woolmer and the investigation into how/why it happened dominated newspaper headlines for days. Some of the latest chapters in the Woolmer drama include that he was murdered by people afraid that his proposals on how match-fixing should be ended would reveal who they were and would end their illegal practices. DIE BURGER reported that match-fixing has caused cricket a great deal of harm and that its damaging effect has spread widely, in SA and elsewhere. The newspaper said that it was in the interests of cricket that uncertainty concerning the true reason for Woolmer’s death should be cleared up as soon as possible. Rapport said that Woolmer’s death was a terrible atrocity and would overshadow the 2007 Cricket World Cup.
