    Retirement

    I'd like to give notice of my retirement before the new season starts. It has been a cool few seasons with the Colts, we never did win a trophy but we did have some good moments. For me, it was the 4 or 5 centuries that I scored for the Colts, in the lower order and at No. 3. I'm sure the Colts will go onto to win trophies one of these day.

    But for now, priorities have changed, and with graduating from pre-med, and getting into Med School. I'm afraid I haven't much time for CW. I'd rather someone better take my place.

    FC
    G Nayak 29 56 3 1725 32.55 33 0 9 4 146* 3

    OD
    G Nayak 9 8 3 106 21.20 2 0 0 0 43

    Never did crack OD cricket. So long.

    You were a quality batsman and a mainstay of the Colts batting lineup. You'll surely be missed.

    But good luck with Med School.

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Colts will miss you. Echo Liam's sentiments.
    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    I’m sure I echo the sentiments of all members of the CW Colts when I state how saddened we are at the loss of a fine player. One of only two current Colts players to average above 30 runs per dismissal in FC cricket. Reigning FC Batsman of the Year. Your retirement will hurt the team – which is a compliment in itself, but good luck with future endeavours.

    Could retired players play in Grade Cricket, or are they always completely removed from the system?

    Depends on whether the player wants to remain in Grade Cricket.

    This is different from (say) Hoy's situation though.

    I think it'd be a good thing if all players are kept on in Grade Cricket, unless they specifically ask not to be.

    Agreed. When we struggled last season Nayak was our best and most consistent batsman.

    You will be sorely missed mate, and hard to replace in the batting line up. Thanks for all the fine innings you played for the Colts


    Good luck on your studies as well. I'm sure you'll ace it.

    Mate, sad to see you go. Whenever I or anyone else failed you seemed to pick up the pieces and it really kept us is some matches.

    Haha! *looks the other way*

    Seriously, gutted you've left but you've got good reasoning. Nayak to someday return as Colts team doctor?
    REMEMBER: A couple of years in therapy, you'll get over it.
