    Don't see what must be so vital for her to stay in England that he must have to give up cricket, anyone know her occupation?

    O'No.

    Nah, fair enough. Don't have a problem with him doing that at all, and good luck to him. I would have preferred to see him leave it until after the Aussie series though.

    Shame, he worked well at Leics. Workmanlike overseas seam bowlers are their speciality (always wished Kasprowicz had played longer there).

    Iain O'Brien retires from International Cricket

    Not even joking.

    Big decision to make, think it's extremely noble and admirable of him. Really hope he goes out on a high.

    Please stop reopening this wound! It needs some time to heal.

    I hear O'Brien's going to retire soon, perhaps after the Pakistan series.

    Can understand his decision and - unlike blokes like Jesse Ryder and Brendon McCullum - O'Brilliant has eked every bit of his ability out of his body and converted it into effort on the field. Just proof that hard work can get you a long way in this world.

    Harsh on Ryder there if you're talking on field performance. Thats where Ryder's character is at its best.
    Proudly supporting Central Districts

    How is it harsh? His whole game is dependent on the work he puts in off the field. And considering he's put on about 30kg of pure blubber since his under-19 days, and spends all weekend drinking (inbetween playing club cricket), it's safe to say he's barely touched the surface of what he's ultimately capable of.

    He did have a ridiculous run of 50+ test scores culminating in a double hundred vs India.

    Hasn't put a foot wrong in tests in terms of results. Losing weight would help his bowling probably, doesnt seem to affect his batting or fielding.

    Ah well, if you're happy with him not reaching all his potential, good on you.

    I hope you become a primary school teacher, and start coaching netball, making sure not to keep the score, because we can't have the little bastards striving to be successful in sports, can we?
