    Nothing substantive there but I've been tipping this for a couple of weeks.

    Reckon he'll give up England altogether after the World Cup.

    RIP Craigos. A true CW legend. You will be missed.

    Its the right time for him to retire from test cricket.

    With England in a good place and young players clamouring for his spot, it is as good a time as any for Colly to step down. Him being able to concentrate on limited overs cricket, which has always been his forte, would help the team and himself.
    And we still haven't walked in the glow of each other's majestic presence.

    To be fair Colly's only acknowledging the truth of the situation; it could well be his last test.

    He does have a habit of producing knocks when his worth's being questioned tho.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Indeed, been so many times that Collingwood's head has been called for, and he's made a ton in a Test that a few were rumouring to be his last. Would not be at all surprising to see him make a big score in this final Test of the series.

    Whilst facing the magisterial talents of Mitchell Johnson and Peter Siddle? Not to mention the dangerous off-spin of Michael Clarke! Have you gone mad?

    Excellent point, I guess I have, and you also forgot to mention the most impressive of the bowling attack, the left arm Shane Warne.

    See this would be funny if Collingwood was currently averaging more than 15 against said bowlers.
    Fighting for peace is like screwing for virginity.

    can't help but think you guys are forgetting someone




    With a first class bowling average of 39 Michael Hussey is a man to fear

    WAFG.

    Galle, the CB series, his century at Edgbaston against the Saffies when he was in the last chance saloon, Cardiff, Centurion and Cape Town will never be forgotten.

    In terms of overall fielding always thought he was a rung below ABDV, Ponting and Symonds but second only to Rhodes in my time taking spectacular catches.

    So wrong it is ridiculous. Solanki was too loose for international cricket. Lots of shots but no bottle and brain.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.
