    obviously some media scoop will come of this

    My mate works at pacbrands - slazenger - knows the waughs and the clarkes personally, and the rest of the slazenger heads

    i shall have some raw info next week i believe....hopefully

    could be all wrong, but the impression from my mate is that something big happened and Martyn wasnt having any of it

    not only TEST cricket

    Cricket all -up - 1st class, park cricket, the like

    he wont really be missed as the aussies are a huge force with or without him. might leave a whole in for the perth test while watson is out.

    but someone will come in and fill his boots quick enough, thats what is so good about aussie cricket, they are so blimmin strong

    Un-friggin-believable!

    I can only asume he's finally cracked under all the pressure from the media,ex cricketers and so called aussie fans that think he's too old...

    Although that doesn't sound like the Damo i know (the guy that told WA cricket GOD Dennis Lillee to go and get stuffed for saying something similar a month ago), it must be something else.

    Used to be a big Marto fan back in the Warriors glory days, but i've been fairly criticle of him in recent years(although as you mentioned,he hasn't been too bad in the last year.....ICC trophy,SA tour etc.)

    I just read a more indepth article http://www.cricket.com.au/default.aspx?s=m...ay&id=38177... he says his hearts not in it anymore, fair enough.

    I guess the most logical replacement would be either Hodge(never should have been dropped in the first place) or Jaques(primarily an opener but could confortably slot into 4 given the form he's in)

    Watson has been ruled out of the next test, so if they still want an allrounder it would have to be either White or Symonds.

    If they want to blood a youngster than look no further than Mark Cosgrove, he's already a certainty to take over Marto's 1 day spot.

    Some roughies...

    Man, that is indeed BIG news.
    On the lighter side... New Zealand cricket should take what the Aussies don't won't... we could have had Hussey years ago.

    You can have Jaques and Hodge too coz it looks like we'll never use them....

    There's a lot of similarities between the Aussie Cricket team and the New Zealand Rugby team... Both have an National squad, and 'A' squad, does Australia have an Juniour squad?

    Think we should do a trade... rugby players for cricket players BUT don't think two many aussies would be stoked to play for NZ... shame... it would make NZ a lot more competitive in cricket (good bit of fishing there if I don't say so myself)...

    Edit...

    To quote "it's a deal, it's a steal, it's in fact it's f&*king sale of the f&*king century"

    Will swap Martyn for a naturally gifted rising rugby union star called 'Lavea'.

    Not only that we’ll through in three (yes three!) moccasin wearing un-natural blondes from Hamilton, all clad in black denim and sporting black Led Zepp singlet’s- all, amazingly all are called Michelle...
    They f&*k on first dates but sadly Dad doesn’t own a brewery but they all drink Waikato beer buy the crate... what a deal!
