    Jason Gillespie Set To Retire?

    An article telling of Martyn, Kasprowicz and Elliot joining the ICL has hinted that Jason Gillespie may retire to join the rebel league.

    Jimmy Maher, who will play his last game for Queensland from Friday, and Jason Gillespie, who is expected to retire in the next couple of weeks, are also expected to be chased by the ICL.

    I'm not sure, but I think he announced last week that he is retiring.

    ICL sure is skimming the top off the domestic scene - Maher, Kasprowicz, Elliot, Gillespie.

    Dizzy is probably the biggest shock - going from CA contracted to retired altogether.

    Maher eh? Him and Gillespie is ITSTL.

    Think Elliott and Kasprowicz would have gone about now ICL or no ICL though.

    Either way - my feelings well-known - sooner ICL withers and dies the better.

    I thought Dizzy was going to join the IPL, he was saying a lot of good things about it the other day in an interview.

    Money talks.

    Personally I find it the most disapointing of all the recent retirements. Still has a lot ot offer South Australian cricket.

    I'm still very unclear as to whether Marto is playing for ICL or not. I'm actually not sure I want him to. As for Gillespie, yeah, um, a real loss...

    Yeah agree with this, could have done a job on the english county circuit as an overseas player as well.

    Pretty sure counties are still selecting IPL players. Law playing this season for Lancashire last time I checked. With one oversea players I don't think too many countries are that keen to sign him.

    Good luck to Dizzy if he is retiring. I've met him a few times and he's one of the nicest blokes you're likely to meet. If he's after one final payday in the ICL then good on him. I wish him well.

    I'm pretty sure Marto is, which is a shame.

    It ruins the air of mystery that's surrounded him since his retirement.

    I mean, nobody has sighted him for at least 13 months!

    Best retirement ever!
