So Shane’s retiring. Enjoy your mooted commentary career, and try and behave yourself.
A lot of the commentary has been about his sexual infidelities, which don’t especially bother me – it’s a personal matter between him and his wife, and at least he seems to genuinely like the women he fools around with.
I was always more bothered by the bookmaking scandals and the drug-ban – unprofessional and unsportsmanlike, and a really bad example to young players looking up to him as the man who brought back spin.
A confusing character. A great bowler. Definitely will be missed.
