Michael Hussey to retire after Sydney Test vs Sri Lanka

Hussey's decision to hang his boots comes weeks after Ricky Ponting retired. This means Australia will not have their services during the Ashes series to be played in June.

Sydney:  Australian veteran Mike Hussey announced Saturday he will retire from Test cricket after next week's third and final clash against Sri Lanka in Sydney.

The evergreen Hussey, who continues to flourish at 37, just months younger than Ricky Ponting who called it quits earlier this month, said he wanted to spend more time with his four young children, who are all aged under eight.

"The Sydney Test against Sri Lanka will be my last Test match for Australia and I'm going to retire from international cricket at the end of the Australian summer," he told the Nine Network.

"I was quite excited to tell them (children) that I'm not going to go away and play for Australia any more."

Hussey has scored 19 hundreds in 78 Tests and averages 51.52.
