Justin Langer to retire at the end of the Ashes

Australian opener Justin Langer has ,as many of you might have expected announced that he won’t wear the baggy green after the last test against England. Langer joins fellow journeymen Glenn Mcgrath and Shane Warne on the retirement road.

Langer has formed a solid opening pair with Matthew Hayden at the top of the order and the duo have been responsible for giving Australia some solid starts in recent times. He has been an unsung hero for Australia, but has been a vital part of their test team.

Many of you might remember the test at Hobart when Gilchrist and he took Australia from a position of no return to a test victory against Pakistan.

Langer captains Somerset in English county cricket and will stay with them for the 2007 season. He also holds the record for highest score made by a Somerset batsman ( 342).

Australia are currently aiming to whitewash England 5-0 and that will be the perfect farewell for Langer, Pigeon and Warne.
