    I've been crying myself to sleep lately thinking about Jacques' retirement.

    Remember he will be playing for The Thunder In the big bash league. I should be able to watch him play live once again and see him guide the Thunder to their maiden Big Bash title, that would be so special

    Hope he decides to come out here every year for a while

    What can I say. Ganguly , Ponting couldn't win an IPL title for the KKR

    Jacques turns up and they win two titles, such the legend and greatness of the man

    Cant wait to see him in action for the Thunder, will be a privilege and a treat like no other

    Hope Jacques takes up commentating in the BBL when he retires in a few years time..

    That would be really awesome

    Really struggled for the Thunder from memory. Saw him live batting against Starc and he got done for pace and had his stumps re-arranged.

    Never got to see him play live outside of that game. A great disappointment.

    Can’t blame him, the great man has been a big loss.
