One of the things that annoy me about ICC is that there's no way to preserve the stats of your players when they retire. So I thought we could have a thread where people can post about some of their players who are getting to that stage of their careers.
They don't have to be really awesome players - anyone at all.
I'll start with these guys, who I won't be using again after the World Cup (in which NZ, believe it or not, got knocked out in the semis - it's amazing how realistic this game can be).
Gaffaney was never anything special, but he was a useful, attacking opener who often gave us good starts. His average was boosted by a rather monstrous knock against the USA in this World Cup!
I'm going to miss Oram and Walker - they were the guts of my middle order from the start, and they've been amazing with the ball as well. But they've been declining a bit in their effectiveness, particularly their bowling.
Scott was an awesome new-ball bowler for us in ODIs.
