    Mike Hussey retires from international cricket

    Australian batsman to play his final Test in Sydney

    By IPL Desk
    Mumbai 29 December 2012
    Mike Hussey has today announced that the third Vodafone Test against Sri Lanka in Sydney will be his last Test.

    Australia’s 393rd Test Cap, Hussey will play his 79th and final Test in Sydney but noted he will play out the remainder of the 2012-13 Australian summer, as well as be available for the WA Warriors and Perth Scorchers. He will review his availability for the Warriors and Scorchers at the end of the 2012-13 season.

    CA Chairman Wally Edwards said he had followed Hussey's career with admiration at Wanneroo, Western Australia and, after 10 years of fine state cricket, as an Australian player.

    "Michael has had a fine career - he has been a great player, a great team player and has always been a great person, on and off the field," Mr Edwards said.

    "To debut as a Test cricketer at 30 and to go on and achieve what he has done has been absolutely terrific".

    CA Chief Executive Officer James Sutherland said Hussey would be a huge loss on and off the field for Australia, but wished him well in his life after cricket.

    “Michael Hussey has been a vital contributor to many Australian team wins over his very successful Test cricket career.

    “Affectionately known as "Mr Cricket", he has always been thoroughly committed to meticulous preparation and the highest levels of physical fitness which have in turn delivered consistent performances in all forms of the game.

    “An incredibly reliable player and leader within the Australian cricket team, Michael will retire from Test cricket with a record that puts him amongst the very best Australian batsmen of all time.

    “Beyond his contributions to team success, he will be remembered for the way he has carried himself on and off the field - and in doing so he has won the respect and admiration of players, officials and fans all around the world.

    “In congratulating him on a great Test career, we wish him well and hope to see him stay close to the game after his playing days are over,” Mr Sutherland said.
