With Michael Hussey announcing his intention to quit international cricket just weeks after ex-captain Ricky Ponting retired, Australia's attention has turned quickly to who will fill the two big voids in the batting order for 2013 series in India and England.
The 37-year-old Hussey, seemingly at the peak of his powers, made the surprise announcement on the weekend as Australia prepared for the third test in a series it has already secured against Sri Lanka by winning the first two matches.
The traditional New Year's test at Sydney starting Jan. 3 will be Hussey's 79th and last, following Ponting, Australia's all-time leading run-scorer, into retirement.
