Cricket World Cup: Woolmer dead, Flintoff sacked

It's not been a good day for Cricket. Pakistan cricket coach Bob Woolmer died in hospital a few hours after he was found unconcious in a pool of vomit at his hotel room. Murder? Suicide? Heart attack? It's too early to say but there's no denying that Woolmer was really upset after minnows Ireland ousted Pakistan from the cricket World Cup.

Meanwhile, Andrew Flintoff has been sacked as England's vice-captain after having been apparently rescued from the sea in an inebriated condition one day before playing a World Cup match. Guess he didn't quite care for the World Cup. Details are sketchy in both cases.

But one thing is for certain, March 18 is not a date cricket fans are going to forget in a hurry.
