`Happily retired` Hussey says has had his `turn` in competitive cricket
Sydney: Former Australian Test cricketer Mike Hussey has put to rest chances of a comeback, saying he has already had his turn, even as the star`s decision earlier had withstood the strongest scrutiny.
According to The Daily Telegraph, the idea had been the rationale for Hussey`s abrupt retirement, and the star admitted that before the first Test, he was a bit nervous wondering if he would miss being about there but he had not at all.
Hussey had thrived in the type of conditions where the current Australian batting line-up was struggling and was renowned for his commitment and grit, the report said.
The cricketer has been accused of throwing the likes of Phil Hughes and Steve Smith to the wolves with his retirement, and his decision was a blow for the struggling team, the report added.
Hussey said that there was no point going to England knowing that he would not be 100 percent in it, without having heart for extra nets or an extra training session.
