    For me it's like choosing between relations with Judy Garland or Liza Minnelli. The latter is disasterous, but at least her body still works.

    Even with all the decomposing, you'd still bet Garland has a higher proportion of her own body parts, though.

    Haha, deadset the most selfish, most self-involved person in cricket. Acts like a hero and yet doesn't give a reason for retiring. Makes it sound like he's been forced to do it. "I knew I could play Test Cricket again. But now I'm stopping." What the crap? Just come out and say it. You're bogus.

    Umm "my time is up" ring any bells?

    Anyone who has watched himplay the last 4 tests can see the effect injuries have taken and as such he's had it - no work on the ball with zero accuracy = useless

    He's never been accurate but he could spin the ball like a top and get tremendous drop. Now he can do neither and should go
