Laxman has retired. Great batsman. That's the Kolkatta 2001 partnership gone. Anyone who could toy with that Australian attack was special, and Laxman was indeed special. His last great innings? Guiding India to a home win against Australia needing another hundred runs with only Ishant (alongside him) and Ojha (next man in).  Special batsman who was at his best when the situation most needed an inspired innings. I'll miss him, but it was time to go. Hope he enjoys his retirement.

Ditto.  Often overlooked in the headlines next to Tendulkar/Dravid/Sehwag etc. but a wonderful player.  I think I'm right in saying that he has the best 4th innings record of any batsmen in test cricket... (or something like that!)  Always seemed to pull out something special when India needed it most.
