IND v/s SL and other tales

It seems Bob Woolmer's death is being treated as "murder" by Jamaican police.

A post-mortem examination established that the former England player had died as a result of "manual strangulation", police Commissioner Lucius Thomas said.

I generally hate to write these kind of things on my blog, but this news is a bit too much as not to be affected or un-noticed. It is a sour world cup with investigation of the Pakistani Cricket Squad and Jamaican Police being brought into reasons other than security of players. Poor West Indies organizers - I guess they are having a nightmare of a World Cup at their very first hosting. In a statement, Malcolm Speed, the ICC chairman clarified that the World Cup will go on.

"There has been speculation as a result of this (Woolmer's murder) the Cricket World Cup would be discontinued but this will not be the case," Speed said.

Meanwhile, getting to the core of World Cup, today is going to be a crucial match for India. I think it is a good match. But time to appreciate cricket as a game , rather than some mindless, irrational emotions like demolishing a player's house - this is pure crap.
