    I've got SSN on now. No mention of it that I can see.

    EDIT: Tell a lie. Just been on. Says the game v us will be his last game. Shocker

    - 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

    Iím at the gym (so I have no TV at hand) but you sure Charlie did not say last ODI, meaning the game against England for Lara has been adamant that he will tour England this summer?

    Just had the full report on SSN. Definitely all forms of international cricket. Pretty gutted.

    his words were

    "we are receiving news from the west indies camp that brian charles lara has effectively retired from all forms of cricket, goodbye"

    you would expect him to elaborate on it more but for some reason thats not important enough and they just ended the coverage

    Damn, this just means that W.I. will get even more of a hammering in England

    Now there's no possibility of even a drawn test.

    ****, hopefully Lara goes out on a high but I would have loved to see him play test cricket for a few more years considering his still a class above the rest of the West Indian top order. Be emotional scenes come the weekend, best cricketer Iíve ever seen play.

    Best batsman, or best cricketer? Cause that's quite a claim with the cricketers in the 90s (unless you didn't watch cricket then). McGrath, Warne, Murali, Ambrose, Walsh, Wasim, Waqar.....

    Just a great, great player - what a year - Warne, McGratrh & Lara gone almost at once.
