Bob Woolmer: Pakistan coach’s death remembered, 10 years on

When Pakistan coach Bob Woolmer was found unconscious in his hotel room in Jamaica 10 years ago this week, the cricket world was shaken. The 58-year-old was pronounced dead soon after arriving at Kingston hospital on the morning of Sunday, 18 March 2007.

Within days, the ensuing media frenzy intensified after police said he had been strangled. The 2007 Cricket World Cup – which was being hosted in the West Indies – had suddenly been thrust into the centre of a murder investigation(BBC,2017).
