    Young family.

    Fair reason to retire with two massive overseas tours to come in 2013.

    He should have sat out the India tour. It's nothing on the Ashes.

    Yeah fair enough I guess.

    So no Ponting, no Hussey. Safe to say we are in about the 10th consecutive transition period.

    Can we just go back to 24 hours ago and pretend today never happened?

    Sounds as though he has simply just had enough. So surprised by this. If anyone was to go out on top, playing as well as ever, I wouldn't have thought it would be Mr Cricket.
    Captaining WA next year.

    Hussey knows he is useless away from home and would have been dropped after two big overseas tours.

    Nah seriously it is good to see a player put his family ahead of cricket and the national team, for once.

    Hussey is pretty **** away, but he would have been invaluable in India.

    MASSIVE loss with the two Ashes series back to back. I'd have though the time to retire would have been after those two series.

    Clarke and Hussey have been consistently consistent for us in the last few months, and have rarely failed this summer.

    This worries me. I'm not sure there's anyone who can successfully replace him (in fact I'm sure there isn't anyone). Batting, fielding, leadership etc.

    Ouch.

    Yeah true but..

    Someone like Bailey really comes into contention IF he does something decent for Tassie to finish the Shield season.

    Not sure if joking, but Hussey's record away from home is 2441 runs @ 41.37, which is hardly useless and much better than the other mid-30 average batsman currently in the team. In fact he averages 44.81 in India (also 92.60 in Sri lanka).which would have been very handy in the upcoming tour.

    His English average sucks though (31.37) which has always surprised me given his significant experience and excellent results in county cricket.

    The ultimate probot batsman, and a loss that leaves the Australian top 6 looking very skinny indeed. Really hope he can bring up his 20th century in his farewell test.
