    The legend retires

    Ajit Agarkar announces retirement.


    http://www.espncricinfo.com/india/co...ry/679933.html

    The inspiration for Ishant Sharma's consistently mediocre performances has called it quits from all professional cricket. Will always remember you for Adelaide 2003 good sir

    best of luck for future endeavors...thanks for the great memories Ajit
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    A sad sad day. True legend of the game and the first player to have his own appreciation society on here.

    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    It's a while since someone on the honours board at Lord's retired.

    No it hasn't; Dilshan retired less than a week ago.

    I think this is the real reason the BCCI canned the original SA tour itinerary.

    If you actually go back to his first tour of Australia, he didn't look like the worst bowler ever. But pretty soon he was the innocuous dobbler I will always remember him to be. He did have a knack of taking wickets, but only because he took wickets bowling pies. Nevertheless, three cool highlights to his career:

    1. The consecutive ducks
    2. The century at Lord's (Talk Nah Sachin, Lara, and Ricky)
    3. Winning India its second test in Australia ever (with a bunch of pies on a flat pitch)

    Ajit wasn't the best. He was close to the worst among international seam bowlers. But he will be remembered
