    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.

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

    It is answered by rephrasing the question thus:
    Do you think he would prefer to be remembered by people NOT playing or by people playing?

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

    and investigations are ongoing as to who the culprits might be
    Probably some baseball fanatics who think that cricket might overtake baseball in popularity in the future.
