He said, “That’s my retirement plan. The good thing is that I do collect a lot of stumps, but the bad one is I don’t put a mark as to which match they were from. So, after I retire I’ll watch the videos of all my matches, look closely at the sponsors’ logos on the stumps, and figure out which match a stump belongs to. It will be my post-cricket pass time!”.
