MacGill quits internationals

I should say I was surprised to read that Australian leg spinner Stuart MacGill had quit international cricket after now getting the spinners place because of Shane Warne's retirement.

For a long time McGill stayed on the fringes of the Australian team because when Australia had to choose one spinner that choice was always Warnie.

But now that he was in the team more or less as first choice I thought he would take the opportunity with both hands but he has decided to retire from internationals.

He says he is not happy with his performance so far but I think he should have given himself some more time to see if he could add to the 208 wickets he has taken so far.

I don't know how long he will continue playing for New South Wales but I also wonder whether Warne will come out of retirement and take his place. I would rather have him stay in retirement and give somebody else a chance.
