Just read Bob Woolmer has been found unconscious in his hotel room...


Woolmer found unconscious in hotel room


Bob Woolmer, the Pakistan coach, has been taken to University Hospital in Kingston, Jamaica, after being found unconscious in his hotel room earlier this morning.

Woolmer, 58, was discovered lying on the floor of his room, with vomit around him, at 10.45am and was taken by ambulance to hospital at 11.50am. Police also attended his room. "We have taken Bob Woolmer to the hospital and he is in the emergency ward," Pakistan team media manager Pervez Mir told AFP.

At 14.30 local time, Woolmer was still unconscious.

I'm an India fan and boy did we get beats from the Bengali's. We were woeful with the bat and not much better with the ball. I cant believe Ganguly is in the side either. Good luck to Bangladesh though. They bowled excellent line and length and really put the Indian under pressue.

and well done to the Irish too. Excellent game to watch and a major scalp along the way lol

wat u mean u cant believe ganguly is in the side? hes a great batsman and if u look how he's performed since he's been back in the side, he's their most consistant batsman.
Yes he is slow in the field but thats cos he has a back problem, and his big score today against bermuda laid the foundation for a big india score, even tho it was slow scorin compared to the others

I think I could score against Bermuda. I remember him being the only player to score under a run a ball against them. Modern cricket has changed. One day cricket is even more aggressive than it used to be thanks to 20/20.Ganguly is just there to prove himself. I dont think hes a team player and from what we learned from the Chappel incident he seems to think he is bigger than Indian cricket. Well the fool scored a measly 7 runs from 25 odd balls today. I personally never forgave him for his 2003 WC final decision to field first. That about summed up to me what he knew about cricket.

India are out anyway. What a mess. Time for a shakeup in the dressing room. What a sad depressing day :(

The Indian team lost cos their players have forgotten what put them at the top of the list. Dropping Ganguly was the best thing they ever did as he realised he was not bigger than the game. Sehwag should never have been picked as he has been pathetic for the last few series never mind the last few games! Tandelukar one of the best batsman now bats like Geof Boycott doing work to rule but unfortunately the selctors are too scared to bench him from a match. Dhoni one of my favourite players used to play a freestyle game like Gilchist but for some reason he has decided to work on his batting skills and now can't bat to save his life. As fas I can see Bangldesh and the Sri Lankans deserved to win.

If I had my way I would start by sacking Greg Chappel and the chairman of selectors. Denis Lillie has an academy in India, I would look into seeing if he fancied a crack at the coaching job. He was really competetive when he played for Australia, maybe he can bring some of that to India. I would have a quiet word with Tandelukar and remind him that if he wanted another $5m pepsi contract he had better start producing some goods as you can't live forever on past glories. Sehwag would be returned to domestic cricket until he can regain his form. There is alot of talent in Indian cricket but unfortunately the old guard is too scared to make any changes.
