South African Captain Greame Smith declared his retirement gracefully at 33years of age -Amidst the ongoing test series against Austrlia and he was instrumental in making the South African test team as world #1.
When overseas players opt for retirement on their own and at an early age ,why many Indians cling on to their positions in the team ??
Haa haa haa ... !! MONEY MONEY and MONEY ... !!! ask SRT why he played till he was forty .. . !! was it love for game, love for country or even for that matter, was it for making records .... ???? no way. it was only for MONEY. WE ALL INDIANS ARE SELFISH AND THERE MAY BE FEW EXCEPTIONS TO THIS LAW ... !! but really sad to know that Greme Smith retired when he was playing so well ... !!

U are picking-up the example of Smith but not Jacques Kallis. After all itz th preference of individuals till they are shown door.
Even Dhoni wanted to retire a year back and probably he should hv been allowed to quit.
