Seems he got screwed maybe a little bit by the ICC forcing him to complete his residency under normal circumstances, as when he first arrived in Australia, he looked set to be a fixture in the national team with no other spinner about. When he was forced to wait a couple of years, Lyon came around and blocked his entry to the team.

Not sure if its realistic for him to target the LO squad, but good luck to him. Certainly had a very adventurous journey to where he is now, and he should be proud he managed to get an international cap or two in the end.

Its a shame he could not experience some success with the Australian team.

It might have helped to change some peoples opinions about certain issues in Australia.

The story of his background seemed well published before he got into the LOs team, but yeah, I guess its been forgotten as he drifted out. Didnt do very well when given his very limited opportunities.

Hamish Amla has retired from international cricket

the redoubtable Sally Pearson has retired from athletics, after persistent injury. A woman who epitomises the Australian 'can do' mentality and one of my favourite athletes.


Steve Smith has retired from test cricket with immediate effect

oops.... did I say that out loud?

wishful thinking on my part ;)

Yes, I was a bit saddened when I heard that yesterday, Durham.

"The Fierce White Girl" was her moniker amongst her competitors (predominantly black), I think. Incredibly determined, and a little unlucky throughout her career.
Maybe

certainly unlucky with injuries

but I guess staying injury free is the name of the game

she does at least get to retire as world champion in the 100m H

Farewell Amla. The retirement is sadly not before time, but at his peak he was one of the top batsmen of his era, and one of the best post-reintegration for SA.

I'll never forget his ceaseless occupation of the crease against England in 2012. Felt like he batted through the entire summer.
