Manou retires

Englishmen might remember Graham Manou as the wicket-keeper who played his only Test in the 2009 Ashes. He's recently announced his retirement from professional cricket at the age of 31. It's rumoured to be another great piece of man management by Jamie Cox to rank alongside the selectorial shambles that was the Aussie 2009 Ashes campaign.

Manou has played his whole career with a hole in his heart, so perhaps he was destined to retire early....it appears a little strange though. Manou's last game saw him top score in the first innings for South Australia but then lose a match they seemed destined to win as Tasmania chased down 373 in the 4th innings of a low scoring game.
