England fast bowler Graham Onions believes teammate Steve Harmison should continue with his international career.
Harmison is still mulling over his Test future, after missing out on an ECB central contract last week.
But the 2010/11 Ashes tour remains a huge lure, with the fast bowler feeling he has unfinished business Down Under.
He told SunSport: "I've not spoken to Harmy yet so I don't know how he's feeling.
"Some people say I've taken his place, but I don't see it like that.
"His challenge is to come back and I know he can. A player like him out of the team only shows how strong we are. I'm pretty sure he'll keep going though. I know there is talk he may retire from international cricket but I hope that's not the case."
