    Shane Warne and Glenn McGrath set to retire

    Reports from Australia suggest that Shane Warne and Glenn McGrath are set to announce their retirement from test cricket effective from the end of the Ashes series.

    This would mean that Shane Warne has retired from international cricket, since he quit one-day internationals effective from the 2003 World Cup, which he never played in. But he still won't find a place in the All-Star Book Cricket XI since, in all likelihood, he'll continue to play for Hampshire.

    I'm fairly sure that Glenn McGrath will play at the 2007 World Cup.

    Damn! I wish he would have played a little longer... at least another tour to India... would have loved to have seen him get flayed by the Indians! But seriously, he will be missed on the field... wonder if he will be missed off it...

    Interesting you mention it, I msged Ganesh a short while ago saying that I didn't want Warne to retire just yet. I wanted his test career to end the same way it started, with a flogging against India :)
