Cricket: HANSIE Cronje.

HANSIE Cronje's death has provoked little sympathy from a cricketing community still facing the consequences of his deception and the match-fixing scandal that tainted the sport.

Former England coach David Lloyd's reaction that ``regrettably, he will go down as the man who disgraced cricket'', was typical once news filtered through Cronje (pictured) had died in a plane crash in South Africa on Saturday.

Ian Botham was similarly resistant to forgive Cronje's role in the furore, claiming: ``It's a pity he will be remembered for all the bad things he did and not the good things in cricket.''
