    Sort of. From Reuters:

    Former Irish cricket chief dies in Jamaica

    Former Irish Cricket Union chairman Bob Kerr died on Wednesday while in Jamaica with Ireland closing in on World Cup Super Eights qualification. He was 68.

    Kerr was one of the most prominent officials in Irish cricket and has died while Ireland entered the most exciting period in their history, during their first World Cup.

    They helped eliminate former champions Pakistan on Saturday with a three-wicket win and, with Pakistan heading for victory over Zimbabwe, heading for the second-stage Super Eights of the event.

    "The details are a bit vague at the moment because he was staying with supporters in Ocho Rios," Ireland team manager Roy Torrens told Reuters.

    "We have reason to believe that he had a heart attack at 4am. We believe he died on the scene at the hotel." He was staying with his wife, Hope.

    Kerr, from County Fermanagh, was chairman of the Irish Cricket Union, president of the ICU in 2004 and current chairman of Northwest Cricket Union since 2001.

    If that's the case then those responsible for scare-mongering by suggesting it was "suspicious" will need to be looked at. Let's start with Sarfraz.
    Having said that, I still don't know what to believe and was leaning towards "furious Pakistani bookie head demanding a scapegoat and consolation for losing millions". Pure speculation of course but, until the facts come out, everything is really. The whole thing is as equally intriguing as it is tragic.

    Sarfaraz was on the news talking about how the loss to the Windies was suspicious because you could "tell from the body language" [rough quote] that they weren't trying their best to win, and it was the same in the Irish game.

    Can't actually remember if anyone died in the attack on the Pentagon, but if they did it'll probably always be too soon for their families, and TBH I can't see that there's ever any need to joke about it.
