It's odd; when one imagines which sport would be most likely to be riddled with corruption, death and evil, cricket somehow never comes to mind.

Is it really appropriate to continue with this tournament

That's a common question asked in cases like this.

It is answered by rephrasing the question thus:

From what I read about him he would much rather be remembered by people playing, and as such it is entirely appropriate to continue.

Probably some baseball fanatics who think that cricket might overtake baseball in popularity in the future.
