A sunset…

The king has decided to call it quits from ODI cricket. But its too early to write an obituary for a glorious career lasting 15 years.
For one thing, he’ll still lord over the Test arena and this in fact is his real realm.
If Tendulkar’s performances in ODIs have consistently overshadowed his test performances, its the other way round for Lara.
The standout innings in his career will always be the 277, 213 and the brilliant 153 no against the Aussies. And of course the record for the highest score in test cricket and first class cricket will stay in his name for a long time unless someone demolishes a school boy attack like that of Zimbabwe or Bangladesh.
Statistics may say otherwise, but Lara might not be missed in the ODI format. Its test cricket that will miss him most and any tears should be saved for then. But I guess he still has a couple of years of cricket left.
