    Lets say he averages 42 over the next six years (completely arbitrary [sp] numbers), and it drags his average down to less stupendous levels. If he's making those runs in important situations, at critical times that help us win games of cricket (much like what S. Waugh was doing in his final years) as well as the added extras of his fielding and captaincy (and in recent times, it has seemed as though he has been getting better in this aspect) then there's no reason why he shouldn't continue.

    And additionally, there isn't the next generation of players battering down the door at the moment as there has been for the past 15 years.

    Had to happen sooner or later.

    Ponting is out of form. Drop 'em, Merv!

    Agree - plus this is all a big hypothetical assuming he'll drop off because he's taken a break. I think he'll actually continue to comfortably be the best batsman in both forms for the next 2 years.

    Let's clear one thing up - I haven't once suggested he'll drop off because of this break. It was sst who said he sounded to him like he was planning retirement soonish.

    42 is hardly a bad average.

    I'm talking about if he was averaging 30 or less.

    Or worse, doing a Tendulkar.
