Australia fast-bowler Ryan Harris shrugged off his retirement rumors post the forthcoming Ashes, as he strives to commit to international duty as long his body allows him to do so.

The 35-year-old, who last played a Test for Australia during the India series last year, said that his ultimate endeavor is to get back to play in his country, but that he will assess his fitness during the Ashes in England.

“My goal is to get back and play here in Australia, but again that’s a long way off,” Harris was quoted as saying by Sky Sports. “Hopefully there’s five Tests in a row in England first, let’s get through them, and see how I’m going.”

With 113 wickets in just 24 Test matches, Harris has always been a predicament for the oppositions. Moreover, a first-rate record against Team England at 2013 Ashes will be a cause of concern for the hosts, should the speed-star succeed in finding his feet back.

The Ashes, 5-match Test series between the two teams, is scheduled to kick-start from July 8 and will run till August 24 across various venues.
