DAMIEN Martyn today announced his retirement from all international and domestic cricket, causing the biggest surprise yet of this Ashes summer. The Australia No.4 was under pressure to keep his place in the side after the second Test in Adelaide having failed in both that Test and the first at Brisbane, but saved the selectors from a tough decision ahead of the third Test in Perth this week with his shock statement today. Martyn, 35, informed Cricket Australia chief James Sutherland of his decision this morning, and said it was effective immediately. This is sad news im a big fan of Martyn 67 Tests 4406 runs high score 146 Average 51.41
