Very surprised when he got selected for England but that maybe showed the lack of choice we had then and have now in the spin dept.

He's clearly very bright and has interests outside cricket so will do well whatever he does.

I don't think myself he would of been good enough at the top level. Whether he thought that or knew that only he knows.

It sounds a cricket career was not going to be enough for him. It does take some guts to make these decisions.

Wish him well, reminds me of the Rory Hamilton brown who simply walked away.

Great example for young kids...you CAN do well in school AND be a professional athelete. He had the ultimate luxury of choice - become a professional cricketer or a lawyer.
