So till when does the 'breathing' God plays? Till another 'breathing' God is found? Or the God knows when to quit? Or the selectors don't have the 'powers' against God?
Till the time he wishes to. Selectors can never chuck him out. He is bigger than the Selectors. Ask someone from Mumbai and you will know what he is considered there.
Moreover he is intelligent enough to know his time has come and will move out himself. If you remember he took his name out of Twenty 20 world cup inspite of the fact that Dhoni asked him to play.

Are you suggesting he is not good enough?
Thats some statement for someone who was complimented by even the Great Bradman.
I wonder why people are so reluctant in looking towards record books, records are not created by magic, people work very hard for them. If a guy has 11000 test runs,15000 odi runs, around 90 combined centuries, quiet a few wickets. nobody gifted it to him. He has earned it by sheer hard work and dedication for last 20 years!
Harry, no one can deny that he is the little Master of the record books. However, the mark of a great player is they know when to quit. Like a Brian Lara.
Playing on & on & on even when you're nowhere near your earlier form is a sorry state of affairs. And he will keep on playing till he eclipses Lara's record I guess. Hopefully, he will then retire (siggghhhhh).
