Former Australian batsman Damien Martyn has finally revealed the whole truth behind his shock retirement midway through the last Ashes series, saying he had wanted to finish his time earlier in 2006 against South Africa.

Instead, the cajoling of teammates and pre-Ashes hype talked Martyn into going on to the 2006-07 series against England, but he realised by the end of the second Test in Adelaide that he should have been more assertive in telling the team it was time to go.

Martyn's exit, which arrived via a solitary email to Cricket Australia chief executive James Sutherland, was one of the talking points of the summer, and he admitted he should have quit after making a century against the Proteas in Johannesburg in April 2006, following his recall to the Test team.
