Shut the Woolmer Show

Written by F Mirza on June 16th, 2007   (496 views)

It is the time now for the cricket in Pakistan to move on, as the “Higly Competent” police of Jamaica has atlast declared that Pakistani coach Bob Woolmer wasnt murdered after all, and he met his end due to the natural causes.

Nobody was more satisfied then the Dr. Nasim Ashraf, who “suffered” for three traumatic months in the wake of the mysterious death of his team, when the coach was found dead in his hotel during the world cup in Caribbean this year. Former England Test batsman Bob Woolmer, 58, died on March 18, the day after 1992 world champion Pakistan were out played by the minnows Ireland.

In a reliefed manner, Pakistan Cricket Board’s chairman said that,”The chapter of Woolmer’s death is closed and we feel its time to move on.” Jamaican Police, right after the death of Woolmer feel prey to the propaganda of Indian media, and told public that they was treating the death of coach as a murder. There were lots of apprehensions and speculations in the air since then.

Due to the false leads and inappropriate approach, it was Pakistani team who suffered most. They were treated like criminals and ridiculed and insulted in public. They went through an extensive interrogation. They were finger-printed, DNA-teste and were questioned on couple of occassions.

Now many senior and former players are airing their demands that PCB should sue the Jamaican authorities over the insult they inflicted on the Pakistan. There is no doubt that country were cast in a bad light by this whole affair, but there nothing good will come out by lengthening this affair any more. Enough has been said and done, and now when things seem to be settling down in the national team, this issue should also be buried.
