Woolmer's career in photos

Monday, March 19, 2007

Bob Woolmer played in the England side that regained the Ashes from Australia in 1977 - winning the series 3-0

He played in 19 Test matches between 1975 and 1981 - scoring successive hundreds against Australia in 1977

Woolmer played county cricket exclusively for Kent from 1968 to 1984 and is pictured here with Alan Knott

In 1991 he became coach at Warwickshire - guiding them to success in three out of four trophies in 1994

At the end of the 1994 season he left the club to become coach of South Africa but returns to England in 2000

In June 2004 Woolmer accepted the offer to coach Pakistan - becoming only the second foreigner to hold the post

Woolmer enjoyed success with his new side as they defeated England 2-0 in the Test series in 2005

He was involved in controversy in August 2006 as Pakistan became the first side in Test history to forfeit a Test

The cricketing world was shocked to learn of the 58-year-old's death during the 2007 World Cup in the West Indies
