    How do you know exactly that guys like Craig McMillan, Anil Kumble, Sanath Jayasuriya, Sachin Tendulkar, Shoaib Akhtar, Inzamam-ul-Haq will retire after the World Cup? It's only a possibility at this stage, a strong possibility but it's not definate.

    Let's concentrate on the future, rather than the past. It may be the last WC for many legends, but it shall be the first for James Dalrymple, and that can only be a good thing.

    Kallis will only be 35 by the next WC and likely still capable of commanding a place as a batsman at least. No evidence to suggest this will be his last.
    Mark Boucher is only 30 for cripes sake! He'll be 34 by the next WC and surely still a viable option.

    Styris will be 35 at the next WC and McMillan will be 34. It's not impossible that they'd be in the frame then.

    Say what? At the next WC Chanderpaul will be younger than Lara is at this WC. At this stage I see absolutely no evidence to suggest he won't be there.

    See Chanderpaul for Yousuf.
    Shoaib will be 35 and a lot will count on fitness over the next couple of years.

    38 years old at the next WC. It may be his farewell.

    Given that he doesn't bowl with any real pace anymore, I wouldn't write Vaas off yet.
    And Murali is a spinner who seems to have a lot left in him. He could easily make the next WC.

    I think you got a bit carried away.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? 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."

    Most World Cups will be the last for many legends.

    This has been discussed before in this forum, I might add... before my most recent break.

    Scott Styris a legend?!

    Not sure if that is worthy of the skull or not!
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    By New Zealand standards, and looking at recent form, he's not all that far short.

    I know that post was not entirely or at all serious, but some would concur. And that's insulting to Martin Crowe, Chris Cairns and Sir Richard Hadlee, to name three of New Zealand's finest. Recent pickings should not belittle the fact that New Zealand has produced some brilliant cricketers.

    Regarding modern ODIs (given that the careers of 2 of those were in the more reticent era), there haven't been a huge number of better players for New Zealand than the recent Styris. In his last 75 ODIs against ODI-standard teams, his bowling record reads 4.63 at 28.31. Certainly not brilliant, but not poor for a batting-all-rounder. Likewise, with the bat in his last 68 games he's averaged 32.21, performing well against everyone other than Australia.

    I'd go for Astle, Fleming, Twose, Cairns, Parore for the first 2\3s of his career, Harris, Larsen and Bond ahead of him in the 1990s\2000s era.

    I think that the OP was suggesting who might retire, rather than set in concrete.

    And yet he said "will be his last" several times and also a lot of his suggestions were baseless and ridiculous.

    I think McMillan's mention as a legend is would be the most galling to real NZ cricket legends...

    I think we have to face the fact that this may well be Paul Nixon's last World Cup too. I can hardly see my monitor for tears.
