    Kasprowicz announces retirement

    http://aus.cricinfo.com/australia/co...ry/335316.html

    Sad times, but probably a good move for all concerned. A tremendous servant to Australian Cricket and a highly under-rated player. Remember wanting his axing for Lee, but he kept on taking wickets and was often a standout when the rest of the attack fell apart. My favourite memory of his Test Career was his 7(?)-fer against Sri Lanka. Awesome spell. Will be missed.

    Has indeed been a great service to Australian and Qld cricket. One of the best cricketing last names going around as well. Always thought him slightly underrated. Thanks Kaspa.

    Oh. How sad! Really rate him as a player. Glad I got to see him live one last time before he retired (last night).

    Thanks Kasper!

    Still filthy on you gloving that ball to the keeper, tho!!

    But he didn't. Well, not one attached to a bat anyway.

    well, this is just the beginning of the changing of the guard in qld cricket. He was a great player for qld and australia.

    Well, for Qld anyway.

    Tubbs never let him settle in international cricket.

    Tubbs hated Kaspa and Hayden - he never rated them.

    I miss the Australian fast bowlers of the 90s and early 2000s. I was a huge fan of Gillespie, Bichel and Kaspa.

    Yeah, same Jono. Kasporwicz could have taken so many more test wickets had he been in any other team. Didn't see him bowl particularly badly many times. He got the job done which is good enough to get loads of wickets. Was seeing a bit of the Ford Ranger game yesterday and he was bowling in the mid 120s and it is probably the right time for him to announce his retirement. Feel sad though as I loved the bloke a lot.

    It's a real shame, I always enjoyed it when he played. Seemed like a really good bloke.

    Given all the injuries it seems sensible of him to go. Big blow for Qld though... really tough season for them next year I reckon.

    Not really given how injury prone he was, gun bowler indeed. But then according to a few members from NSW, Queensland isn't part of Australia, so there goes back of the half of the Australian Test and ODI teams
