    either should have played the whole series or not bothered at all retiring in the middle of a series is not good at all for the team balance anyways respect for what has been an awesome awesome career the last bowling legend of the game and will remain till Steyn passes 300 mark.

    Got this feeling he'll suit up for the World Cup. Deep down he'd want a sendoff just like McGrath got.

    Needs 8 wickets in the test to get to 800 test wickets.
    This was a serious post:

    So he'll be available for the whole of the English summer of 2011 then

    A last year with Lancashire that finally ends the 77 years of pain (always assuming it won't happen this year) would be a fitting end to his First Class career

    Been coming for a while and its a good decision. He can still do a job but obviously the physical rigors are testing for him. A great servant to Sri Lanka and also to cricket I'd venture to say. Highest wicket taker of all time and living legend.

    The only question left is whether he gets the 800 and makes it a round figure before he retires.

    I wasn't expecting that. Sudden end to a wonderful career.

    Without having read any responses, I'd imagine they'd be split between "what a legend" and "good riddance chucker".

    For the record, I'm in the first camp.

    Murphy's rich vein of form continues.

    Anyway, it'd be churlish to say anything other than Murali's been a great servant to Sri Lankan cricket. Never much been a fan, but an undeniably wonderful career.

    Great if he can take 800.

    OK, Sachithra Senanayake should be warming up to play some real cricket
    Diuretics are used to look good at TV shows

    I played for 20 years in the Lankan team, I did not have any problems as a Tamil - Muralidaran
