News : Michael Hussey to retire from international cricket
Brydon Coverdale : The unexpected departure
Players/Officials: Michael Hussey
"Mr Cricket = efficiency, excellence, adaptability, modesty, passion, team man, Aussie + singer of Southern Cross. Well Played."
Damien Fleming, the former Australia fast bowler
"Mike's career was all the more remarkable because he was forced to wait until he was 30 and had scored over 10,000 first-class runs before he had the opportunity to wear the baggy green. If anyone ever earned the right to play for Australia it was Mike Hussey, and given the chance he made the most of it. Now he goes out on top, leaving the game on his own terms."
Australia captain Michael Clarke
"Huss, all the best pal! You deserve a strong send off at the SCG. Finish with a win!"
Jason Gillespie, the former Australia bowler
"Congrats Michael Hussey, an outstanding career, a true winner that worked as hard as anyone I've had the pleasure to play with or coach."
Tom Moody, the former Australia allrounder
"Was shocked when Huss told me of his decision. He will retire a champion."
Australia coach Mickey Arthur
"Privileged to have played with Huss back in 2005. Changed Durham as a club! Professional, determined and a huge run-scorer. PS: a nightmare to play against."
England bowler Graham Onions
"I can't believe Mike Hussey has retired from International cricket. A seriously tough competitor with an amazing record. Congratulations."
Former England allrounder Paul Collingwood
