A few days ago, Mitchell Starc said he was taken aback when Michael Hussey phoned him up to break the news of his decision to retire.
“It was quite a shock when I got the phone call yesterday from Mike," Starc said, as reported by www.cricket.co.au
"With Ricky (Ponting) retiring and now Mike, it makes the Sydney Test a lot more special."
"He's going to leave a big hole. It's hard to replace Ricky Ponting, now we've got to replace him and Mike Hussey.
