Mike Hussey`s return is hypothetical, says ArthurNew Delhi: Under-fire Australia coach Mickey Arthur has played down the talk of Mike Hussey coming out of retirement, in the wake of the team`s disastrous show in the ongoing Test series in India.

Arthur termed the question whether Hussey could come back into the team for the Ashes series later this year as `hypothetical`.

"We`d certainly listen to Mike Hussey if Mike Hussey came knocking at our door. But that`s hypothetical at the moment. He`s retired. We`ve moved on now, you know?" Arthur said.

"Yeah, we miss him (Hussey). We also miss the aura of Ricky Ponting, but I`m hoping that these younger players will take over that mantle in time to come. I`m confident we`ve got the best players here... (but) they`re nowhere near ready yet," he was quoted as saying.

On his part, Hussey last week denied any interest in returning to the national side.

"Nah, I don`t think so," he had said when asked about his possible comeback.

The 37-year-old Hussey, who retired in January, is still playing state cricket for Western Australia. In his last two Sheffield Shield matches he scored an unbeaten 99 and 96.
