Melbourne: Mike Hussey has ruled out coming out of retirement despite Australian cricket coach Mickey Arthur saying that he is open to welcoming back the batsman who was a crucial cog in the team's middle-order till a few months back.
Hussey retired in January with 6235 Test runs at an average of 51.52. The 37-year-old veteran of 79 Tests said it was flattering to hear Arthur emphasising his relevance during what has been a nightmare tour of India.
"It's extremely flattering," Hussey was quoted as saying by 'the Sydney Morning Herald.
"But I've moved on and I really don't want to be back in that pressure-cooker environment, particularly leading into the Ashes," he added.
Hussey conceded that the team, which is down 0-3 in the four-match series against India, is going through a tough phase but ruled out coming back to lend a helping hand, saying that he is enjoying time with his family.
"It's going to be an extremely stressful time for all the boys. I'm really looking forward to having a winter at home, spending some time with the family and leading a normal life," he said.
