Bob Woolmer family members are demanding for charity cricket match

Although willing to aid the planned Bob Woolmer Academy in every possible way, some officials of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) feel the late coach's family is being too demanding by asking for a special charity match.
Bob Woolmer Woolmer's widow Gill had written to both the PCB and the Indian Cricket Board requesting the organisation of a Twenty20 tie during Pakistan's tour of India in November-December for collecting funds for the academy.

While PCB had expressed its willingness to play the match, the BCCI shot down the idea, saying the schedule was too crammed for such an arrangement.

Recalling an incident, a PCB official said Shoaib Akhtar was sent to Cape Town for an analysis programme in 2005 on the recommendation of Woolmer and despite staying with the coach himself, the pacer had to manage all his expenses.

"The board got a shock when it was told that although Shoaib stayed at Woolmer's place he was charged for every little thing," an official said.

The PCB, however, maintained that it was committed to helping the family to set up the academy in Cape Town.

"It was a dream project of Bob Woolmer but again the problem is the hectic international itinerary of both teams in the coming months," he said.
