Despite being 2-0 down in a five-match series, Hussey is "still hopeful" Australia can turn it around in the Ashes series.

Sydney:

Former Australia batsman Mike Hussey says he has no plans for a test comeback and is happy to be free of the pressure his former teammates are facing after two Ashes test defeats in England.

Hussey retired earlier this year after a 79-test career, determined to spend more time with his young family. He said while he knew the Australian players were "doing it tough" after their 347-run defeat at Lord's on Sunday, he isn't available for a test recall.

Hussey said he is "sort of glad I'm not really in that pressure situation. There's a lot of stress and tension involved so I certainly haven't missed being out there on the international stage."

Despite being 2-0 down in a five-match series, Hussey is "still hopeful" Australia can turn it around. (Also read: Michael Clarke vows to have last laugh)
