Hayden not retiring anytime soon

Matthew Hayden has today indicated that he will not follow the lead of long time friends and teammates into retirement at the end of the Ashes series.

With the news of Damien Martyn, Shane Warne and Glenn McGrath all calling it a day, speculation had been growing that the 36 year old would be the next to go.

However, in an interview with ABC Radio after his spectacular first innings total of 153, he signified that he would not be quitting the game anywhere in the near future and that the 4th Ashes Test would not be his last match at the MCG.

“I’ll be back here for sure. I’m not happy with leaving at this stage. I’ve enjoyed a lot of cricket here and I’d love to enjoy a bit more,” He said.

Hayden scored his 27th Test century today, leading the charge for an Ashes clean sweep in Melbourne.
