Looking back now, it seems fairly obvious that Bob Woolmer was murdered. All that talk about him being diabetic and him not taking the loss well and dying seems so naive and baseless. The man was a thorough professional, having played cricket himself. And any individual going ahead with a coaching job in the sub-continent, especially Pakistan, would be well aware of the stress levels of the job. To say he simply was saddened and died of a broken heart is being ultra naive, Woolmer was paid handsomly for his job and being a thorough professional he would have taken defeats, yes even the ones against Ireland, in his stride.
Having established the fact that Bob Woolmer has indeed been murdered, it leads us to the very obvious next question. Who murdered Bob Woolmer? I’m going to go out on a limb here and pull out my best guess from my a** once again. Alright folks, get ready for this….I’m willing to bet a member of the Pakistani cricket team has killed him. Here’s why:
Its been established that Bob Woolmer received a death threat right after the defeat, the very evening of his death. Having known that, he refused to go out to eat, instead having room srevice deliver dinner to his room. Under this situation, the only person who could have possibly any access to the coach that evening would have to be a member of the Pakistani cricket team. What are the chances of Bob Woolmer entertaining a complete stranger, on the night of worst day of his coaching career and the night he receives a death threat as well? It almost certainly has to be a mmeber of the Pakistani squad. Now, this might not necessarily be a playing member. I’m not aware of the support staff the Pakistani team travels with but they are not beyonf suspicion. But I would more likely guess a player is involved. Why you ask? Read on…
Bob Woolmer was apparently strangulated, his neck was found broken. This does not seem like a professional, planned out, slick mafia hit. Strangulation is painful, slow and dare I say noisy even. Everything you would want to avoid if you wanted to make quick getaway. Besides, professional hitmen have way more sophisticated methods of murder such as poisoning or silent guns etc. This was not a professional job. It is more likely a job carried A. In the spur of the moment B. By an amateur and C. a very strong individual. It would be safe to assume that the person who killed Bob Woolmer would well have to be larger and stronger than Woolmer himself. And now, by all accounts Bob Woolmer was not a small man, infact one can notice he had quite a thick neck and strangulating him would’ve taken some serious effort. This makes me suspicious that this wasnt the act of one single person, its almost certain there will be accomplices in this murder.
Now, having stated the above, who could be that one (lets assume one for now!) person who A. Had access to Woolmer on the night of his murder B. Was larger and more powerful than Woolmer and C. Prone to physical violence at the spur of a moment. Who you ask? Ladies and gentlemen of the concerned world of cricket, I have no choice but to deduce from my observations above, one person who is very likely to have had a hand (no pun intended) in Bob Woolmer is none other than the Pakistani cricket captain Inzamam Ul Haq himself. Yes, the docile, patient, almost baby faced, humble giant of an individual who has been a spectacular sportsman over the past decade and half….could have well murdered his own coach. Why you ask? What is his motive? Well, why don’t we just wait to hear what other information is revealed surrounding this case and if at all the Jamaican police believe a player is involved (I believe they are not ruling this out at the moment) before we speculate any further.
