A bit late this time. This covers various people connected with cricket who passed away in the calendar year 2016. It includes all Test players and several other categories such as Test umpires, prominent journalists and administrators, prominent female cricketers and better-known domestic cricketers (mainly from India and England). Some subjectivity is involved here.
I had earlier done similar summaries for 2014 and 2015, which can be found elsewhere on this blog.
