    How much time is left before gilly(church) bids goodbye!?

    What do you guys think will he also retire after WC or will he play more do you think whenever he desires to retire he will quit from both forms of the game or like quit from odi's and play till the ashes in 09 in test cricket what do you think? Whenever he retires i will miss him more than warne and pidge.

    I think Gilly has a couple years left. He'll be around at least for the Indian tour I think, and may make '09 Ashes his final.

    gilly is someone i really want to play for a long time and him being such a gr8 team man he will not lead the team into a position where after 3 players having already left he won't want to make the team slip down in any more experience.

    A shark-jumped Gilchrist is not an asset to the Australian team if there are good young wicketkeepers in the wings. If he feels he's not capable of performing as he should, by all means let the man retire.

    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."

    Gilly did comment that he will play in the Twenty20 world cup even though he disagrees with it. Maybe that will be his last hoorah

    I would say he will retire from ODI's at least after next summer, tests might depend abit on form.

    I would say in a couple of years, definitely no longer than the 09 ashes series though.

    ENGLAND ashes holders in 2009.

    it sounds as thoughtfull as englands plans for global domination by 2011 the way england are shaping up at the moment they would be lucky if they even manage to avoid another 5-0 whitewash in 09.As for gilly he will play in the ashes in 09 he will want to retire with a bang.
