    Or the man who overruled the selection of Jacques Rudolph at Sydney in 2002 and put in Rudolph’s place the woefully under prepared/not particularly good Cape Coloured cricketer, Justin Ontong.

    Dunno much abt him and how he has done as an administrator but this is very unfortunate indeed and I just wish God gives his family the strength to cope with this loss.

    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    Read the article about him being critically ill in hospital and wasn't all too suprised when I found this on Cricinfo about two minutes ago. Died relatively young too, RIP.

    Didn't think much of the guy but he was way too young to die. RIP and condolences to his family.
