    people don't just lose their passion, jesus man.
    The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.

    I am of the opinion that broadly speaking, bowlers retire because they're physically knackered; and batsmen when they are mentally knackered.

    I actually feel for batsmen more in this situation. A bowler, for as long as he is physically able, can bounce back again and again. A batsmen has that "one bad shot and you're a gonna" thing hanging over him all his career. It must take a mental toll.

    Someone above mentioned Tendulkar playing well in Australia, right up until the point he got out. Playing well to make a composed 20, then just nicking one to slip without doing anything obviously wrong must be worse for a top player than playing like you're holding the bat the wrong way, but knowing you can correct it.

    Sorry, but they do. Didn't Gilly say that that drop against Pakistan just finished him right there and then.

    And I've just finished reading Langer's bio. He said he knew that was it when Hoggard bowled him first ball at Perth in 06/07. Knowing "that's it" implies losing the required passion.

    Riggins was being sarcastic.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    Misbah now has the record for being the oldest test centurion. Tendulkar absolutely has to get this record. He didn't get the youngest centurion record, he must have it.

    Nah, the record is 46, by Jack Hobbs. No idea what the Cricinfo facebook page was on about.

    Must be oldest for Pakistan. Doing a quick scan there are 17 players with test tons after their 40th birthday so has to be a national record.

    On 63* at the moment with Mumbai needing 30 more runs to win at 210-6. Really hope he guides them all the way in his final Ranji innings. Being broadcast btw, just keep the commentary on mute so you don't have to listen to them go on and on about his accolades.

    How good is it that there aren't enough runs left for him to get a ton?

    Was going to reply with the ponting gif, but on second thought it's pretty fitting given his obsession with records.
