The cricket world was shocked to learn of Bob Woolmers sudden death in Jamaica, a day after Pakistans early exit from the world cup.The tributes have started coming in. Here are the early ones:"The news was pretty devastating, to be honest. He was a very, very close friend, actually more than as a coach...He was a very respected man. We were together with Warwickshire and South Africa. Bob was an extremely professional man, was an extremely soft person, gave his life to cricket, and probably paid for it."Allan Donald"I am shocked and badly hurt. We have lost a good coach and a good person."Inzamam-Ul-Haq"We had a marvellous time together. Can't believe it happened. It happened so quickly . We can't do anything about it....Huge tragedy for Pakistan cricket, a huge shock for the nation. Don't think I can take it very well...Was a lovely man, very understanding."Shoaib Akhtar We have lost a cricket legend who has helped cricket throughout the world.... Anyone wanna add something please go ahead...
