WHAT HAP­PENED

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.
