London, July 8 (ANI): Former Australian batsman Damien Martyn has said that the Australian team would miss the services of batsman Mike Hussey, who has retired from all forms of international cricket.
According to the Daily Star, the former batsman thinks that the absence of the Perth left-hander had left a huge gap in the tourists' batting line-up, but the current Ashes series was a great opportunity for some of the rookie batsman to seize their moment.
Hussey had averaged 51 in 79 Tests, which put him in the top ten in Australian history and gave him the title of 'Mister Cricket,' the report said.
The Australians have also had to deal with the retirement of Ricky Ponting, exposing a fairly young team that was still maturing. (ANI)
