Cricket Obituaries-2018

Here is a list of prominent cricketers who passed away in 2018. Apart from male Test players who are covered in full, other categories covered here would be female international players, ODI and T20I players, Test umpires, administrators and major domestic players. The last two categories are subjective, depending largely on whether the compiler has heard of them earlier.

This is delayed until the end of September 2019 as some deaths are reported late-sometimes even years later for lesser-known players.

Information is summarized from the obituaries in Cricinfo and Cricketarchive.

Cricket obituaries of 2017

A quick look at prominent cricketing figures who passed away in 2017. This does include all Test players. “Others” include major ODI and FC players, Test umpires, prominent female players, administrators and journalists. This list would have to be subjective as this writer is more familiar with cricket in India and England.

Information has been taken from Cricinfo and Cricket Archive. Between them, they should not have missed anyone.

Note that this blog contains obituaries for 2014 onward which have appeared in the beginning of 2015 and subsequent years.

Cricketer’s deaths in 2016 (Revised in June 2018)

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.

This had earlier appeared in early 2017. It has been revised in June 2018 with additional information.
