What dignity! Paul Collingwood: a man who always knew his limitations and made the very best of his ability. He is one of the best fielders I have ever seen and, with a test match average of 42 before this series started, showed what grit and determination can achieve.
He faced Warne and McGrath and lived to tell the tale - and has been a part of three Ashes triumphs. I tell you what, if Pietersen could be blended with Collingwood you would have something very special!
We will miss him.
