It's so weird how these things work out and makes it so tough to evaluate careers properly.
    It's not exactly unusual though. I'm sure a lot of players would have their career averages dip by 3-5 runs before they retire.

    Bit late I know, but well done to Hashim on a fine career, a class player who was truly excellent at his peak

    Yeah I think the 70's generation (apart from Ponting/Dravid) were a bit of an anomaly regarding this. Most people of Amla's generation declined fairly significantly too.
    RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012
    RIP Hughesy 1988-2014. 63* for eternity.

    Sangakkara and Kallis timed their retirements perfectly, in statistical terms.

    I'd actually rate Faf's adelaide knock as the key one in that serious
    The downside of having a vegatarian in ones side, you can only go so far with baked beans, mushrooms and suppliment pills
