@Harish and @Vasu: Why would Ganguly and Laxman be in this list. Please read the heading correctly - this is a list of players who have retired in the year 2013. Both Ganguly and Laxman retired in 2012. The last match in any form of cricket by Ganguly was in May 2012 and by Laxman was in Nov 2012.

@Danish Ali: There's two tracks here. The first two minutes and the last two minutes are the same track, called 'Island Sun'. And the middle portion is called 'Flying High'. They may be tough to find online because they are from the ESPN Audio Library. And, while I'm at it, King Kallis is still available for selection for the Proteas ODI squad, so he wouldn't make this montage even if it were to be remade. Cheers!
