Dumped Test spinner Nathan Hauritz – his disenchantment with Australian cricket complete – has given away his cricket gear.
In a bizarre scene, the New South Wales spin bowler was sitting in front of a cardboard box at his Sydney flat as he gave away his kit on Saturday.
Just weeks ago he was lining up with his Test teammates at the Ashes squad announcement at Sydney Opera House.
As those players prepared for the third Test in Perth, Hauritz had a garage sale, selling unwanted items along with the Test jumpers he gave away.
Heavy wool, long and short-sleeved, and training gear, some with the tags still attached, were mixed with New South Wales and generic gear.
Hauritz didn’t need a sign. He simply said: “I don’t play for them any more.”
