Obituaries

Postby raja » Tue Aug 08, 2017 10:12 am

Is there a way to quickly find out which cricketers have passed away in a particular year / timeframe?

For example, if I want to know which cricketers passed away in 2016, or year-to-date?

I know cricinfo usually has an obit when a cricketer passes away, but I'm not totally wired into cricinfo every day - and might miss out on someone's death news.

I'd like every Test cricketer's death to be brought to my notice.

Misty does a good job of it - but I think I might have missed out a few in the last year or so.

Raja this is a morbid idea.
Every day we'll be learning of another death.

Raja if you go to the cricket wiki project on Wikipedia I think they list them somewhere.

Boycs30 correct about Wikipedia because it's says "" which cricketer Murdered, when ""
( including former WI captain Stollmeyer captain for 13 tests, who was murdered.Bob Woolmer last person in the list ) Wikipedia mentions sorry we not say about those cricketer who pass away during War )

Thank you, Misty, this was very useful.

Was good to read about those we lost in 2016. Some I remembered - like Gleeson and Goddard.
But I didn't know about Maddocks and Javed Akhtar.

Ted Corbett
(Many Indians might know him for his reporting for the Hindu newspaper).

http://www.espncricinfo.com/story/_/id/ ... es-aged-82

Btw, I've made this thread sticky, so it is easily accessible (yes, I'm morbid, that way).

In future, please use this to report/discuss deaths.

RIP, Bob.

I didn't know he was suffering from brain cancer.

Remember him very well from his playing days for Australia.

Dutchie lifted us all from the doldrums at a very low point in Australian Cricket history when he destroyed the mighty Windies side of 84-85 on a SCG Turner then did the same to a very good Kiwi side 12 months later on the same track.
You where a ray of light in the Darkness Dutchie, thank you.

I think you'll find most his wickets were in county cricket. He is another one that got away from NZ in the pursuit of dollars. The fact we managed to keep Hadlee is basically a miracle and possibly his dad's influence.
If any moderator or administrator is able to add Going South to my foe list, I would greatly appreciate it.
