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.
Note: sometimes even Cricinfo messes up. They did not mention the death of WI player CK Singh who played 2 Tests in the early 1960s, though his passing in 2015 was mentioned in Wisden and other sources.
Note that this blog continues obituaries for 2014 onwards which have appeared in the beginning of 2015 and subsequent years.
