It's a hard one for the selectors, there are players that it's so hard to let go of - I suspect that the South Africans are going to go the same way with Dale Steyn over the next couple of years but at some point you have to stop relying on "Old Faithful" and look to the youngsters.

It's made even harder by guys like Graham Gooch who just got better and better with age (he was probably about the same age as Dhoni is now when he hit that triple century at Lords and went on for a few golden years after that).

Some players know when to go. Others, I suppose, just can't see a life outside of the game and want to stay forever so won't admit to any persistent niggles or deterioration in the eye-sight. And I very much get that. If you've got the best job in the world, why would you want to stop doing it?

And yes, what is it about coders and sport? I've never really understood how so few engage with it!
Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect. - Mark Twain
