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.
Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.
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.
"as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
- Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli
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.
