Bye Bye Bob Woolmer

I don't know Bob Woolmer. Yellow teeth n silver hair, red skin from the Pakistani Sun... But when I got to work, more people seemed to be concerned about the fact that he'd died, than the match that India had played with Bangladesh. That was a topic, I believe anyways, that a lot of us have buried. No one wants to talk of bad things.

I wonder how the Pakistani team feel... Having exited the cup, and the loosing their coach. Was he someone they respected? I mean, it's one thing to say he was, to the media.. and another thing to actually think it, and feel it. How did he feel, with the early exit of his team?

Were Greg Chapell to die, what would we in India say? He's not exactly loved here, most Indians view the man with much animosity.. I don't know why. Maybe cause he says it like it is. Maybe its cz he's fond of experimenting, often to the detriment of the team. Sometimes to reveal hidden talent. Like Shantakumaran Sreesnath I believe.

So India will go in today to regain fallen pride, display (hopefully) learnt lessons, and with a heart set to not only win, but to win by a big ass margin. What happens if they loose to Bermuda.. I don't know. God help them if they do.

Ten bucks says that he tried drowning his sorrow in Inzy's kheer stash, and just ended up drowning...
