"Woolmers death suspicious" - No sh*t Sherlock

Ireland beat Pakistan at cricket, which is as unlikely as Jamaica beating Canada at Ice Hockey; the next day the coach of Pakistan who was rumoured to have been writing a book outing match fixing cartels, is found dead in his bathroom and the Jamaican police needed an investigation before they declared his death suspicious!!

You have got to be shitting me. Columbo's wife could have told you that. It would have been suspicious had someone not been found dead. You don't need Hawkeye and the Snickometer to work out what has happened here. Not that I'm accusing Pakistan of cheating. I mean, they wouldn't would they? Pakistans players would never throw a match against possibly the weakest team in cricketing history in order to make a few quid would they? OK so they're embroiled in some sort of cheating controversy on an annual basis, but this is cricket and anyway, it says in the Koran that you won't be allowed into paradise if you steal.

What is harder to work out here, is what the f*ck is happening to the world? This is cricket for f*cks sake. THE gentlemans game! adopt Tom Hanks character in A League of Their Own - There's no murder in cricket. THERE'S NO MURDER IN CRICKET. If the Columbians want to gun down their own players for scoring own goals in vital World Cup games, I can accept that. We expect that, but this is cricket. Cricket is village greens. Cricket is lemonade and straw hats. Cricket is sportsmanship and may the best team win.

Cricket is this:

Come on Mafia types, jolly well leave off will you.
