This thread if for the cricketers you think should/will/may retire at the 2007 world cup.
There's a lot of greats who are making low scores and who are veterans like Tendulkar and recently, Lara. Then there are vets you wouldn't expect to go much further... despite being in good form like Pollock and Murali. Then there are the guys who planned to retire there but just were never gonna make it like Cairnes and Goughy.
I feel sad because when people say "what era do you wish you saw?" This era is actually up threre. Watching cricket in the late 90s with names like Tendulkar, Lara, Warne, Murali, Waugh, McGrath, Donald, Akram, Ambrose, Walsh, Waqar etc. It was a great era. And even now, I feel privellidged to say I lived in the era of the spin twins - Murali and Warne and even when they're in poor form, Lara and Tendulkar. But when these guys go I'll be moving into a thinner periods. Flintoff might end up a great. Dravid, Kallis and Ponting are all pretty great - although I wont ever rate them as highly as I do Lara and Tendulkar. I just feel we'll be moving on from a great era.
Who's gonna leave us at the World Cup?
