Surely Marsh is nowhere near the test squad, being in the ODI squad is understandable has he has had a good start to his ODI career, but that couldnt possibly see him become the no1 opener after a pathetic season, could it?

If Rogers doesnt go to South Africa then Hilditch ought to be shot

jeez, ditch hayden, put rogers in the "sadly missed out on australia because of all the other talent" category that the likes of hodge and dussey inhabit and go with hughes for the future. for the ashes i'd take katich, jaques and hughes. rogers will probably be playing CC so if those don't work out call him up.

I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt atm, there are 3 Vics in the Aussie ODI side, 2 in the test side

I think a few other bowlers will be disappointed though.

Listen chaps, Australia are a better team with Rogers or Hughes opening. MH has been a walking wicket for over a year now.

Probably a smart decision as at least he goes out on his own terms now rather than risk being axed by the selectors.

Quite possibly. I think being dropped from the ODI team last week probably gave him a hint that he may have been on the way out with the selectors anyway.

There has also been a fair amount of pressure from the media and the public for him to retire. If he tried to continue that would have only got worse, especially if he kept on failing.

I think he's done the right thing. This way, he will still be remembered as an arrogant, petulant bully, but one who scored quite a few runs in his time and didn't cost them the 2009 Ashes.

I'll still remember him as the arrogant flat track bully who lost them the 2005 Ashes

You're talking up your mate Hayden again?

Like everything the Aussies do, losing the 2005 Ashes was real teamwork. Simon Katich, Adam Gilchrist, Damien Martyn, Brett Lee, Shaun Tait, Michael Kasprowicz, Jason Gillespie and that bloke that put down the cricketball that McGrath twisted his ankle on, take a bow

Don't forget the fat text pest who quite possibly dropped the whole thing.

I'm surprised he didn't wait until after the Ashes to retire.

Perhaps he didn't want to lose them again!

Perhaps he was worried Simon Jones was making a comeback.

Quite possibly he would have been axed for the South African tour, and if that didn't happen, the combination of his current form and his previous record in South Africa would have made an axing after that tour rather likely.

It was certainly time to go. As someone who has previously before shown myself as not being his greatest fan, (i.e. I'm a fan of fast bowling and I believe that against the real quicks he wasn't of quite the highest class) its good that he goes before he becomes a pale shadow of what he was. Apparently he gets a send off at the Gabba with a lap of honour.
