Adam Gilchrist retires

Glen McGrath, Shane Warne and now Adam Gilchrist.

They've shown the world how to retire in style. I was surprisingly shocked to read about Gilli's retirement! He retires from tests and one day cricket after this series against India / Sri Lanka.

What a time to retire - Just after creating a world record.

Our ageing Indian cricketers on the other hand, keep saying they want to play until they are chucked out for performance. Not only do they lose their pride but they rob an youngster's chance of playing for the country.

I hope Kumble, Tendulkar, Ganguly, Dravid and Laxman learn a lesson here and retire soon. They might be good as I write this, but they have to quit for the younger generation.

GILLI - We'll miss you Sir.
