Catch our Cricketers doing this…

29 Jan

The BBC Website carries the main reason why Adam Gilchrist decided to retire.

Australia wicket-keeper Adam Gilchrist says a dropped catch in the fourth and final Test against India convinced him to retire from international cricket.

Gilchrist, whose error meant VVS Laxman survived, said it dawned on him he should quit “somewhere between the ball hitting my gloves and the ground”.

Do you think any of our guys will do this? No way… they need to be prised out…

    I was gob-smacked that Gilchrist made his decision in an obvious emotional state. I think he might regret it. I know Australia regrets it and I don’t know where we’ll find another one like him. He could have stayed in the Test side on his batting record alone. A couple of dropped catches means nothing in the bigger picture. and I think he had at least one more year in him.

    By the way, Vijay, Harbhajan has got off! No surprise really but (from this side) a bit disappointing to see that a ‘deal’ was done just to satisfy the BCCI.
