    My guesstimate is McGrath's retirement not very far away !

    Quite possibly Ashes next year !

    Warne's retirement extremely unlikely for another 3-4 years until Cameron White or some one else reaches the potential to take over the spinning duties for Australia ahead of Warne !!

    Warne was sked this question in the January isue of Wisden Asia Cricket.

    q} How close have you come to retirement?
    a} I have thought about it. That's why I retired from ODI cricket. I wanted to keep my test career going. It was a big deciion for me because it is such good un. If I want to play until I am 37 or 38, I had to do it.

    McGrath had a fairly bad injury last year - Warne has had at least 2 - and they're both still playing.

    Unlike his brother, he jumped before the remotest risk of being pushed... with hindsight I wish so much that Mark had retired after The Ashes 2001... though at the time I'd have been scandalised of course...

    Which may well be when they realize they're no longer good enough.

    That's the Australian way.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    or rather when they get dropped or the selectors give them notice. like they did with david boon and the waughs.
    Tendulkar = the most overated player EVER!!
    Beckham = the most overated footballer EVER!!
    Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!

    Or with Ian Healy which prove a perfect time for him to go even though it was so sad.. I STILL believe he deserved that one test he wanted..

    I think both will retire after the 2007 World Cup in the Windies
