Adam Gilchrist announces retirement

Adam Gilchrist, IMO one of the greatest ever Australian cricketers, today announced his retirement from international and domestic first class and limited overs cricket. The current Test will be his last and he will step down from 50 over cricket at the end of the forthcoming tri-series.

Whatever his reasons I think it's a pity that he feels the need to retire now, when he is still such a capable player, even if he has recently fallen a little short of the extremely high standards of wicket keeping and batting which he has set.

I shall have more to say later but in the meantime will enjoy the few remaining times I'll be able to watch him, either in person (as in the current Test) or on TV.
