'Tis A Special Day...
At the sundown of their cricketing careers, Warnie and McGrath finished off with one thousand and one wickets between them in Test Cricket matches! What a wonderful achievement by these two men. We will miss them, no matter what anyone says. We'll miss the steady, gentle man, McGrath, and we will miss the larrikin, Warne, who at times has disappointed with his off-field antics, but never on the field. Larrikins, let's face it, attract and conduct our interest...whether we like it or not. And Warnie sure has been a larrikin! He's probably lived out and acted out many a man's dream!
It's a great day for the game. It's a great day for Aussie cricket. The crowds who have attended these matches and those who've watched from home on their sofas are testament to that.
Goodbye to Shane Warne, Glen McGrath and Justin Langer. Thank you for the games and the fun.
