I'll bet Brad Haddin's ears pricked up on Monday, with Adam Gilchrist mentioning retirement!
Apparently Gilly's discussed retiring from both forms of international cricket; however he's also contemplated retiring from ODI's & continuing on with Test matches.
It's a harsh call, but (to tell the truth) I don't think Australia will skip a beat in his absence. Brad Haddin's an exceptional keeper-batsmen, & Australia are extremely lucky to have such a superb replacement .available
I know that some other countries will be rubbing their hands with glee, at the prospect of Gilly's departure... but I think they'll be in for a very rude shock!
