Axed Test spinner Nathan Hauritz has told those close to him he still has a burning ambition to fight his way back into the Australian team.
Hauritz held a garage sale at his beachside Sydney apartment over the weekend, at which the items lying around included a few of his old Test jumpers.
He gave away a couple of his jumpers but wanted it known that this should not be taken as a sign he was any less determined to break back into the Test team.
Many regard Hauritz as the best spinner in Australia, and believe he was unlucky not to be included in the squad for the third Ashes Test after taking 5-39 for NSW in the Sheffield Shield match against Western Australia at the WACA Ground on December 1.
He followed that up with three wickets and 148 for NSW against South Australia at the SCG last week but it was not enough to sway the selectors.
