Ganguly announces his retirement

Shirt that Ganguly took of in his infamous celebrationImage via WikipediaImage via WikipediaPutting an end to speculation Saurav Ganguly announced just a few minutes ago that the Border-Gavaskar Cup 2008 would be his last Test series.

Let us shove aside the why’s and why not’s and celebrate the achievements of the man.

Like that spirit, Ott.

A great, fighting cricketer. I've attempted a clumsy ode back at my blog. Do stop by to check it out.

Some cridit shd go to Sreekanth for bringing Ganguly back and allowing him to retire with dignity. Ganguly said he was not sure of being selected for the test matches.
If Ganguly could shove some runs into Chappelss mouth it will be a fitting farewell.
Ganguly will be missed for those cover drives and clean carrier shots.

R,

This was planned and nothing like it has been portrayed. The selectors for once are to be appreciated for their sensitivity.
