Discarded Australia spinner Nathan Hauritz has sold off much of his Test kit after being overlooked by selectors for the Ashes series.

The 29-year-old has taken 63 wickets in 17 Tests for Australia, but he has subsequently fallen down the pecking order.

Xavier Doherty was called up for the opening two matches of the Ashes, while Steven Smith and the uncapped Michael Beer have been added to the squad for the third Test in Perth.

And Hauritz has reacted badly to being snubbed by selling many of his Test items such as woollen sweaters and boots outside his Sydney apartment on Saturday.

According to the Sydney Daily Telegraph when asked why he was doing it, he said: "I don't play for them anymore."
