Q.

It is the usual practice of all top cricketers to announce the retirement during their performance in a particular Test and get an honourable standing ovation from the crowd as well as the cricketing comrades. VVS had a wonderful opportunity of doing this in his home ground. He missed it. Even now, he can rethink, give a call to Krishnamachari Srikkanth and play the two tests for which he has been selected and announce that he will retire after the Hyderabad Test. Will this message reach VVS?

I could not agree with your line..................... Even now, he can rethink, give a call to Krishnamachari Srikkanth.

In India, it is possible that sub-standard cricketers are made chairman of selection committe. Can you imagine, what business he had to tell Laxman as to what was best for him? I would rather ask Shrikanth to admit his conspiracy of plotting Laxman's exit. What Laxman wrong could it be if he played till the end of the season and announced retirement after Australia series?

The selection committee head Shrikant should be caught by scruff of his neck for his nasty plot and be made accountable for not summoning Dhon's explanation for 8-0 defeat overseas. I think both Dhoni and Shrikanth be driven out of their present position. The captain of 8-0 loser team is now a busy salesman of perfumes branded in his name and did not take call of Laxman before his ...more

I am sure that he has reasons for doing so. Anyway it is better to quit while on top rather than being booted out when one has over stayed
