Almanac Cricket – If It’s Good Enough For Watto…

I would like to take this opportunity to advise you of my intention to retire from the Australian Test Cricket team. While I still love the game and will continue to play at lower levels to support grassroots cricket, I feel I can not give my total commitment and that without this, know that I can’t perform at the highest level.

Furthermore, I would like also to end my playing career with the Carlton Football Club. After the year we have had, I feel like I need to provide the best opportunity for the next generation of Carlton players.

While I’m at it, despite having never played a competitive game of soccer in my life I feel that it is necessary to also remove myself from selection to the Socceroos during the ongoing qualification process for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

I would like to formally thank my family and friends during this time of normal activity.

I would have known however, my continued willingness to be selected in the Davis Cup squad for the semi-finals against Great Britain. I don’t have lines shaved into my head, or an overbearing crazy as batshit father but I can toss a racquet and swear at random people just trying to do their job. And I really don’t like Andy Murray.


Yours sincerely,

MV Younger.

    Watch this space with Watto.

    He may review his decision.

  2. Peter that is hilarious…
    And MV, I’ve just thought about all those jobs I’ll never have that I can resign from…
