    Well, he was a good player. :)
    I liked him but now we will miss a good player. :(
    I hope he enjoys his rest of life with peace. :D

    Michael made an outstanding contribution to English cricket.

    He is a credit to the game, his family and friends.

    Good luck to Michael.:)

    I can't say I'll miss him, in fact there's not many English players that I'd miss. They tend to play a rather dull game, and attempt to avoid defeat rather than risk winning. :(

    qazu, I can only assume you're basing that on stereotype rather than experience.

    Having watched the entire England/Windies series in the caribbean, I have never seen a side shut up shop like the West Indies did - they snatched a deserved victory in the first test with some phenomenal bowling from Jermaine Taylor (and atrocious batting from England), then did everything in their power to ensure the next two tests were draws - they prepared two of the most dull, lifeless tracks seen in international cricket for years and batted so far within themselves it was scarcely believable. Both times, England were denied by the smallest of margins while pushing for the win.

    Perhaps in the past (mid 90s) England were a little negative, but that is likely more due to a lack of genuine quality players than any specific 'way' of playing cricket.

    As for MV, he will be a loss to the game, arguably one of the finest drivers of a ball ever seen in the modern game, it's just a shame his form fell apart so dramatically after 2005.

    Well, he was one of the best captains that England had ever produced, the captain who won ashes for England after several years...:)

    It's sad that he had to retire when the ashes is just round the corner..
