What is he going to do with his bats? I will happily take some, help keep his home clutter free.

Class player but probably the right time to retire from the internationals

I admire his humility and his modesty. Always been low key and didn't like being in spotlight.

I'd happily take one of his jersey and frame it!

That new left arm spinner Dan Moriarty is a decent player not sure if he is better than Amar Verdi though . Played a lot of cricket with and against him last season.

Surrey dont have many spinners on the books as Batty is close to retirement, Virdi is the number 1 and Freddie VDB has been released/moved on to a new job.

I hope Amla is a good signing, he will certainly show the young batters what it takes to be a world class player. We need an experienced top order batsmen.
