Rahul Dravid retired on accurate time and he had made good decision. He is very good player and Played well for India and retired on time. I think there is no late or early. He is talented player. And decision is also talented.

Not failure but low aim is crime.

May be yes, may be no.
For me it's a wise decision. To retire at the peak of your career is the best thing to do. Reason is people does not want you to retire then, and so your retirement will have a greater value.
A player should not till everyone in the world wants him to retire. Reason is that he loses respect. Now everyone can see that dravid is being praised by everyone. Had he waited for some two to three years, we would have responded in a different way on his retirement.
So, finally I feel that dravid has made a wise decision

Yes, he had made a good decision in implementing his retring from the international cricket. He has shown a good example for the youngsters and the players should make a role model of dravid so that they can play well in the Indian team. Sachin should look after the asia cup and he should retire from cricket after this cup, then only it will become a good understanding among the players side.

Rahul Dravid has been very prolific run scorer and a gentleman cricketer throughout his career. He has always been commanding utmost respect from Indian as well as opposite teams. But, all good things must come to an end and so did Rahul's distinguished career. One must remember that though Dravid is a thorough team-man, he is also a family man. How many of us can live away from family for almost half the year and for how long? Dravid's absence will also create a huge void in team's middle order but it was bound to happen and there is no better time to nurture a young talent for future. Hence, considering Dravid's situation on family as well as professional fronts, the decision he took seems very good. After all, Rahul is best judge of himself and if this judge has ruled in favor of retirement, so be it!

No. I dont think dravid has to retire now. No one is there still to replace rahul dravid. If dravid was there at crease he was able to break even sachin's record of centuries. When dravid stands in crease for batting, it was a fear bowlers.

I believe Rahul should have retired after the England series and not wait for the Australian tour. In any case this is a right decision and I saw it coming.

With this decision Dravid has made a statement to the selectors that it is time for change in Indian cricket, as we have lost eight consecutive overseas Test matches. 8-0 is never a good sign.

Well Rahul Dravid has already retired from International cricket but he will play IPL matches. Retiring from cricket is depends upon the player's own self decision. We can't force any player to neither continue nor retire from cricket. Rahul Dravid has served so much towards the nation and being responsible citizens of the country, we all have to welcome his decision. I think this thread need to be locked.

I think a good player must bow out when he is in good ranks with the people and the board. That will make him a graceful exit. So what Dravid has done is right.
