    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Good timing. Hopefully he'll knock a few runs.

    His re-invention was an inspiration for sure - but I really do feel it is time now.
    World XI Since 1990 -

    1. Gooch 2. Dravid 3. Ponting 4. Tendulkar 5. Lara 6. Kallis 7. Gilchrist 8. Akram 9. Warne 10. Ambrose 11. McGrath

    It's definitely time to go, but damn, cricket won't quite be the same without Sachin

    Wow. Damn.

    Probably the right time to retire, but Can't imagine the Indian team without him.

    Yeah been gunning for his retirement, but the announcement still leaves me with gloomy feeling. He has been part our lives growing up - I mean that absolutely literally.

    "All my life, I have had a dream of playing cricket for India. I have been living this dream every day for the last 24 years. It's hard for me to imagine a life without playing cricket because it's all I have ever done since I was 11 years old. It's been a huge honour to have represented my country and played all over the world."
    Safe to say that for no other cricketer, the sport has meant so much.

    I am feeling a huge sense of loss, much more than I imagined I would. I was just eating my lunch when a friend called, and asked in this incredibly heavy voice, "Suna tune?" (Did you hear about it?). I hadn't, and now this chicken tastes worse than cardboard. The last legend is gone. Nobody left now, show's over. I will perhaps become less nostalgic during the day, and may even partake in a little humour on this, but right now, I am getting a whiskey. Mumbai test, Tendulkar's 200th, vs West Indies is one I am going to watch. I am sure the price of the tickets just went through the roof (ah.. the humour is coming back already..).

    Worst kept secret after only two tests v Windies were arranged out of the ICC future test schedules and the problems with CSA.

    But all the best Sach. You were quality.

    Is his final test in Mumbai confirmed ?

    Might adjust my schedule and fly over during that time to watch.

    Those tickets gotta be worth the equivalent of a small country now, surely?
