  • The curtains came down on the career of one of the best pacers to grace the game in recent years as Australia fast bowler Mitchell Johnson retired from all forms of international cricket at the end of the second Test against New Zealand here on Tuesday. Johnson, the country's fourth highest Test wicket-taker, informed his teammates of his decision on Monday night, saying that after 73 Tests he felt it was the right time to walk away from the game.
