I just read this on the IRC #cricket channel site on Cricinfo:
The current #cricket channel topic is:
'Sidhu retires - tour management fail to make him stay.
Would be most interested in finding if anyone else has heard (or read)
If this is correct, it is definitely a blow for the Indian team - just
when we though that we had the opening pair worked out!!!
By the way, can the team fill his spot with one more player?
