Mitchell Johnson has called time on his international career, with the fast bowler announcing his intention to retire at the conclusion of the current second Test match against New Zealand in Perth.

Following this morning’s announcement by Cricket Australia, Johnson was given a guard of honour by the fielding New Zealand team and a standing ovation from the crowd as he emerged for his last Test innings shortly before lunch on the final day of play at the Waca Ground.

The 34-year-old brings the curtain down on his Australia career as his country’s fourth highest Test wicket-taker with 311.
