    You will see a few playing in Tests still, Kumble, Nasser, Caddick will still appear in them, maybe even Srinath

    Although I have heard nothing suggesting it, Zulu has not been picked for the TVS cup...Maybe its just ludicrous selection policy, or he has had enough?

    the way this year has panned out cricketwise for me, I would not be surprised if he has retired ! :rolleyes:

    There was alot of talk going around that he would be dropped from the side, even after a ok World Cup... which in turn could lead to retirement, but nothing more was ever heard, could have just been the commentator's guessing again.

    He's not played a Test for years but I'd expect him to keep going in the OD side for a while yet.

    Of these, Kumble could still(possibly) come back into the test and ODI team, so could Klusener into the ODI side, Hussain is still playing tests, Srinath hasn't officially retired. What about Caddick? Has he announced his retirement from international cricket or something? Didn't hear that one...

    Well, what's your definition of "casuality"

    If you mean casuality in as the world cup ruined their career, then I can't agree with many of those.

    If you're saying it's probably just the last we'll see of them, then that's fine, I guess.

    I can't believe Kumble's just been brushed aside He used to be so good...darn shoulder injury

    For most of those players, the World Cup didn't ruin their career. Half of them have had such outstanding careers that it's hard to ruin it in one month. :rolleyes: :P
    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."
