Cricket News sort by retirement

Former South African all-rounder Jacques Kallis in a recent interview to a cricket portal has backed his decision to retire from one-day cricket just months ahead of the 2015 World Cup.

One could see it coming. For nearly two decades now, Mahela Jayawardene has shouldered the burden of Sri Lanka on his capable shoulders, and has done so with admirable success, in such a sublime manner that you cannot but have great respect for the man.

Once India’s pace bowling spearhead, left-armer Zaheer Khan has been omitted from India’s squad that will tour England for five Tests.

2013, in a sense, can be termed as retirement season in the sport, since so many big names hanged their boots. As the year draws to a close, here’s a look at some prominent names who quit the game in 2013.

Honestly, it was only a matter of time. Jacques Kallis, the most complete cricketer of the modern era, has announced his retirement from the five-day game

Honestly, it was only a matter of time. Jacques Kallis, the most complete cricketer of the modern era, has announced his retirement from the five- day game at the end of the Boxing Day Test against India.

On November 15, 1989, a 16-year-old named Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar made his Test debut against a ferocious Pakistan attack at Karachi.

When Sachin Tendulkar hangs his boots at the end of the Mumbai Test at Wankhede Stadium that is currently underway, it will not only bring to an end a glorious 24-year-old career, but will also put the curtains down on a very special era in international cricket.

After all the speculations, it’s official now. Sachin Tendulkar will play his farewell Test at his home ground, the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
