Yes , he should have announced the retirement after india tour. Because the way he played against india in last two tours look like Hayden is on the way to retire. He has scored maximum runs against India.

Hayden was a fearsome batsman. It is sad that such a cricketer is leaving the stage with a whimper. He should have left with a bang. He deserved it. I liked the way Saurav left the scene.

No it wasnt right, as it was just a bad patch he was going through... but he may have realised that anyway he`s not performing and this may take sometime to come thru this phase and by the time he`s age also would become a negative factor.. so kal kare so aaj kar... aaj kare so abhi kar... !
