Aussies eyes clean sweep in Hussey's farewell Test
Australia captain Michael Clarke vowed to strive for a 3-0 clean sweep against Sri Lanka in the final Test to give retiring batsman Michael Hussey a fitting send-off.
Clarke has opted for a four-man pace attack after Australia’s crushing innings victory against the tourists in last week’s second Test at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
Mitchell Starc returns after being rested, joining quicks Peter Siddle, Jackson Bird, and MCG man-of-the-match Mitchell Johnson on a green Sydney wicket for Thursday’s Test.
“When guys retire it’s extra special to get a win in that last game for them and I’m certain this Test match will be no different in regards to Michael Hussey,” Clarke said.
