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.
So he's finally thrown in the towel, eh?
Ok ok, I'm out, I'm out.

Needs 8 wickets in the test to get to 800 test wickets.
Champion cricketer, all-time great and a quality person. Will be missed.

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
I thought I would see him at the World Cup at least..
"This is a clash of strategy. And of methods, culture and politics. This is a new-era rivalry. Not as ancient as the Ashes, or as passionate as India-Pakistan. Two countries that are so different, yet share rampant egotism, high self-opinion and a belief that being born in their country is superior to other births. This brings together a belligerent bunch of brats, bullies and braggers." - Jarrod Kimber
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.

Great if he can take 800.
OK, Sachithra Senanayake should be warming up to play some real cricket
