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.
'It seems that perfection is attained, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing more to take away.'
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.

"I don't believe a word of Pietersen's book, but then I don't believe a word anyone else has said either."

Was never as good as Vikram Solanki imo.

Too many bones, not enough CASH!!
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.
