Bob Woolmer Height, Age, Net Worth, House, Affairs, Biography

Bob Woolmer (Robert Andrew Woolmer), (born May 14, 1948, Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh, India—died March 18, 2007, Kingston, Jam.), English cricketer and coach who was a respected player (he was a WisdenCricketer of the Year in 1976) and coach who was a pioneer in the use of computers to analyze player performance. His sudden death, the night after the Pakistani cricket team that he coached was eliminated from the World Cup, led to numerous rumours and conspiracy theories when the Jamaican police announced that it was being treated as “suspicious.” Though a local medical examiner initially indicated that death occurred by strangulation, a British Home Office pathologist, joined by the Jamaican police, later ruled that Woolmer died of natural causes.

In his first-class career, Woolmer played in 350 matches, scoring 15,772 runs at an average of 33.55, with 34 centuries and a high score of 203; he also took 420 wickets (average 25.87) and 239 catches.

He immigrated to South Africa, where he coached a club side before returning to England to coach Kent (1987) and then Warwickshire (1991–94 and 2000–02). He moved up to Test level, coaching South Africa (1994–99) and then Pakistan (from 2004).
