Dissection of an email - Considering the suggestion..

The full text of the email is available on DNA
We discussed other issues in relation to captaincy and the time and effort it took that was eating into his mental reserves and making it difficult to prepare properly for batting in games. He commented that he had enjoyed being free of those responsibilities in the time that he was in Sri Lanka following his ban from international cricket and that he would consider my suggestion.

This was before the game in Mutare. So, Saurav did mention that he would consider stepping down at the end of the tour. What happened to that consideration? Is it too late? It doesn't really make him a lesser person if steps down now. Does it? Wouldn't it be really nice if he just calls a press conference tomorrow and announces that he is stepping down. It would put an end to all this drama. I still believe that he has a few years of international cricket left in him and it would be great if he could just concentrate on proving everyone that his 10k+ ODI runs were no fluke (not just by pointing to his past records but by scoring runs the way he used to).
