Today’s “Phrase of the Day” is put (someone) out to pasture and it’s meaning is “to make someone retire (as the person has become a little too old to work and therefore compel him to quit his/her job). It also means to discontinue something”.
Example Sentence: England’s focus for the moment is the new tournament, the Hundred, which the board hopes will bring in much-needed money. Currently the Hundred is to England what the IPL is to India — a cash cow that is in danger of being put out to pasture.
