Retirements during ICC Cricket World Cup 2007

World Cup's highest wicket-taker McGrath ready for one last hurrah

Glenn McGrath is not only World Cup's leading wicket-taker but as he readies himself for one last fling at the D-day on April 28, the 'Pigeon' will continue to haunt batsmen the world over with the thought they could not face someone with a 'predictable line and length'.
With 25 wickets and four Man-of-the-Match in this World Cup, this legend is just one game away from his retirement from one-day internationals and seems to be getting better and better. After crushing South Africa with a flurry of early wickets and troubling the batsman for 16 long years with his unerring accuracy, McGrath is ready for one last hurrah. "Yes there are no tension and no pressure now and that is the reason I bowled very hard this tournament and that is the reason I am getting wickets," he said.
The leading wicket-taker of the World Cup has his own protg Shaun Tait and Hogg breathing down his neck but the man with the golden arm is ready to take on his younger peers. "This is interesting and fascinating. I have 25, Shaun has 22 and Hogg also has 20. It is a good battle," he said.
McGrath will leave Australian cricket in a better shape than he found it in and the 'Kangaroos', as ever, are ready to make the most of it. With few more months to go before he turns 38, age has still not got the better of the man. "I have one more match to go and I do hope that it will go well. "But this time I have worked hard and put the extra zing to get some more wickets," he concluded.

Arnold confirms retirement

Sri Lanka batsman Russel Arnold has announced he will retire from international cricket after this weekend's World Cup final in Barbados.
The 33-year-old, part of the side that beat New Zealand by 81 runs in the semi-final in Jamaica, will contest his 180th one-day international on Saturday. Arnold needs to score 51 runs in his final international match to reach 4000 ODI runs.
In Test cricket Arnold averages a fraction under 45 with the bat, although he collected just 44 caps in the longer form of the game. His last appearance in Test series was in the 2004 tour of Australia.
Sri Lanka media manager Samantha Algama said: "Russel has announced his retirement from international cricket." "I can confirm it as the team manager, Mr Micheal Tissera, had informed Sri Lanka cricket about it." "Russel had conveyed his decision to the manager during practice at Jamaica."
Arnold made his ODI debut in November 1997 against South Africa in Lahore, a few months after he had made his Test debut against Pakistan in Colombo. He is expected to continue playing domestic cricket for the Colombo-based Nondescript Cricket Club.

Brian Lara announces retirement from cricket

West Indies captain Brian Lara announced his international retirement in Bridgetown on Thursday.
The 37-year-old record-breaking batsman said he would halt his cricket career after Saturday's World Cup Super Eights match against England at the Kensington Oval. "This Saturday will be my last match in international cricket," said Lara after his team's 99-run win over Bangladesh in Barbados.
Lara, who turns 38 on May 2, had already announced last week that he would retire from one-day cricket following the team's disappointing World Cup campaign which had seen them fail to reach the semi-finals. He retires holding the highest ever Test match score of 400 and with 11,953 Test runs to his name in 131 matches and with an average of 52.88. He has played 298 ODIs with 10,387 runs at an average of 40.57.

Zimbabwe's Vusi Sibanda to retire from international cricket

Walking on the footsteps of his senior colleagues, Zimbabwean batsman Vusi Sibanda has decided to retire from international cricket to pursue a club career in Sydney.
The 23-year old batsman's decision came as a result of the ever-increasing mismanagement and corruption in the Zimbabwe Cricket Board. "I had dreamed of playing for Zimbabwe all my life, but, over the years, it has changed a lot. The young guys have been left to clean up the mess. In the last three years, I don't feel like my game has improved, and I believe that will happen in Australia," the 23-year-old Sibanda told 'Sybney Morning Herald'. "I know that, in the long run, I can better my career here. I wouldn't mind playing for a grade or shires team, so long as I felt my game was improving," added the teenage batsman, who has represented his country in the ongoing Caridbean World Cup.
Earlier, former captain Heath Streak, Henry Olonga and Mark Vermeulen also opted for premature retirements because of the crisis.

Inzamam-ul-Haq announces retirement from One Day cricket

Following coach Bob Woolmer's death, Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul-Haq has announced his retirement from one day cricket.
The 37-year-old will be playing his last ODI on Wednesday when Pakistan feature in their last match of the 2007 World Cup, against Zimbabwe in Jamaica. The Pakistan skipper spoke to his father on the phone before taking the decision. The legendary batsman is one of the members of the 10,000 ODI runs club. He made his mark in the 1992 World Cup when his blistering knock of 60 from 37 balls took his side to the final that they went on to win. Whoever takes on the mantle of captaincy from him, will do so under tremendous pressure, and in the midst of a crisis like never before.
