    Mark Waugh: "Pretty much at the start of the year I thought this would be my last season unless a miracle happened and I made 10 centuries and got younger"



    I wonder if he'll stay in cricket in some capacity... commentary or coaching perhaps?

    You have to be of the first people from Sydney I have read that is saying Clarke will replace Steve Waugh.

The aussie cricket board covered up for them which clearly shows the double standards that plagues cricket to this day !:!(
    Had they been made an example of it is my firm belief that Cronje and Azharrudin would never have got into the situations they did.
    That said, Waugh and Warne never fixed matches and by no standards should they have been "kicked-out" of cricket.
    A short ban and a public dressing-down would have done, and would have saved so much from so many.

    An elegant batsman and a fantastic slipper. I don't believe he ever reached his full potential, but I don't think that it worried him a great deal.

    I think he reached his full potential in all fields bar one - Test batting. One-day batting, at international and domestic level, I hoped he might end both careers averaging over 40, but 39 isn't bad. First-Class batting his record is phenominal, even if it has taken another disappointing dip in the last couple of seasons. Catching and fielding everywhere, brilliant. Bowling, not that good, but very useful on occasions. Don't think it could have been much better than it was.
    If he'd have ended with a Test average of 45-6, though, I think it would have been a better indication of his abiliy.
