Pakistan await vindication over Bob


Former Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul-Haq has urged Jamaican authorities to reveal the cause of coach Bob Woolmer’s death as soon as possible and finally clear the team of involvement.

Jamaican police are reportedly due to announce that Woolmer — who was found dead in his hotel room the day after the team were knocked out of the World Cup — was not murdered after all.

“Time will prove our innocence in the case and we want it to be over sooner rather than later,” Inzamam said. “Besides the entire trauma, I was alleged to be, God forbid, involved in Bob’s murder,” he expressed. “Now the true facts are coming out and I am thankful to Almighty,” he added.

Inzamam said the team were still shaken by the days between March 17, when minnows Ireland sent Pakistan out of the World Cup, and March 28, when they returned home with police saying they were still in the frame.

“Those were the most traumatic days of our lives. We were thrown out of the World Cup, Bob died and no one contacted us from Pakistan to give us any consolation,” said Inzamam.

“I pray no Pakistani ever has to go through such circumstances,” said Inzamam, who quit one-day cricket and relinquished the captaincy after the World Cup.

The PCB said it has yet to receive any information from the Jamaican police and would not comment until a formal announcement comes from the Caribbean.
