Shane Bond takes the easy way out

Shane Bond retires from Test cricket, will continue playing One Day and Twenty20 Internationals.

Bond, who suffered an abdominal muscle strain on his return to the New Zealand test side after a two-year absence, says medical assessment shows the injury needs more time than expected to heal and his body simply can't handle the workload of test cricket.

Though he makes all the right noise about the decision to retire, such a decision was expected. The fact that ICL is in a state of disarray and his return to International cricket has made him eligible for the financially lucrative IPL, retiring from Test cricket will ensure his longevity as Twenty20 specialist.
