Australia off-spinner Hauritz announces retirement

Australia off-spinner Nathan Hauritz has announced his retirement from competitive cricket, bringing the curtain down on a 15-year career during which he represented the national side in all three formats.
Hauritz, one of the many spinners Australia turned to after the retirement of bowling great Shane Warne, did not have a state contract for the last two seasons and was used by his Big Bash League side Melbourne Renegades for one match this season.
