New Delhi: Veteran Australian pacer Ryan Harris has bid adieu to cricket which comes as a shock to many lovers of the game worldwide.

Knee injury has forced Harris to retire from the sport and that serves as a big blow for the Aussies ahead of the Ashes starting from 10th July.

The news was confirmed by Cricket Australia through their official account on micro-blogging site Twitter.

Pat Cummins has been named as the replacement of Ryan Harris for the Ashes series.

Injury ruled out Harris of Australia’s tour match against Essex at Chelmsford. Harris played the week before against Kent and results of scans on a painful knee spelt trouble for the pacer.

Harris has been one of Australia's best Test bowler in recent times and his knee injury forced him to call it a day from all forms of cricket.

Harris had played 27 Tests for Australia and picked 113 wickets with an impressive average of 23.52.
