: Mike Hussey says he is relieved his Test career is over after a fairytale finish, steering Australia to a clean-sweep series victory over Sri Lanka in Sydney on Sunday.

The 37-year-old left-hander was at the crease when the winning run was hit by batting partner Mitchell Johnson to clinch a five-wicket win over the Sri Lankans and script the perfect ending for his 79-Test career.

“What a place to finish. The SCG is probably my top three favourite grounds in the whole world,” Hussey said.

“The crowd support and the support in general has been a bit overwhelming and I’ve been a bit embarrassed by it.

“In a way I’m quite relieved that it’s over now. The stress and pressure, I can relax away from it now.” — AFP
