We will not be able to see the magic of shane warne and also the accurate,immaculate line of glenn mc grath.we will miss them. Two of them saying goodbye to the cricket---a big blow..to australia.they are professionals enuff and i think they can handle that pretty well. They are both going at a fine pace still at the age of 36+ and i think they wud have continued for about a yr more but the retirement has to come and y not at the time when you are the superior.they have done a lot for australia and now is the time to watch there kids grow to play 4 australia.this is just great....there is no other word for both of them....""LEGENDS"" that australia produced.

This is a bad news for Australian Cricket Team as there is world cup just after 3 months and this will definately effect them. But still both will be always be on the higher side of the cricket history.

SHANE Warne and Glenn McGrath are the two greatest players of world cricket today and they have admirers all over the world and they will surely be missed and definitely cricket won't be teh same without them in coming years as everybody know's players like shane warne used to audience on his own merit...so, this retirements are not going to be easy for Australian cricket for sure
