An emotional moment for Mitchell Johnson on his farewell day

November 17, 2015 will be remembered as an emotional day for one of Australia’s best left arm pacers Mitchell Johnson. The above image was captured by Paul Kane of Getty Images, when Johnson was spending a special moment with his wife Jessica and daughter Rubika after the conclusion of the game.

A tearful Johnson can be seen with his partner and child, as the family shares an emotional hug after the play on final day of the second Test match against New Zealand at Perth.

It was perhaps not an ideal farewell for the left arm pacer, as he couldn’t turn the match on its head, like he did during the Ashes 2013-14. Currently, Australia are ahead with a 1-0 lead in the four Test Trans-Tasman series.
