Hayden calls it a day

It was hardly surprising to hear today that Matthew Hayden announcing that he was retiring from international cricket after his performances this summer.

But I still think he only needed one good innings to be able to go to South Africa and then after that defend the Ashes in winter in England.

In five Tests after the Indian series he had to get at least one good innings but in the end the highest he got was a 39 at the Sydney Cricket Ground when the Test series had already been lost.

I think that by then he was already under a lot of pressure and under that kind of pressure everything tends to be magnified.

But there is no question he is a great batsman who has a highest score of 380 runs and I wish him well in his retirement.
