Video: Stats highlight of Mitchell Johnson's international career 

The scary left-handed fast bowler who revived the fiery fast bowling with pace and bounce announced bids adieu international cricket.

The Aussie pacer will bowl his last spell when New Zealand will come to bat for the second time in the Perth Test. Mitchell Johnson was instrumental in Australia’s 2015 world cup victory. But, for the last couple of series Johnson was proved to be expensive. 

He has taken the last fifer of his career in February against South Africa at Centurion. He finished the match with 12 wicket haul. But, his performance in the Ashes in England was not up to the mark. He managed only 4 wickets in the Brisbane Test. Josh Hazlewood is sharing the new ball with Mitchell Starc.

But, a career which started in 2007 at Gabba, Brisbane has given us many blood rush. He broken hands of batsmen and forced two English cricketers-Jonathan Trott, Graeme Swann- to take retirement midway through the 2013 Ashes in Australia.

Here is the stats highlight of Mitchell Johnson’s career

311 wickets from 73 tests at an average of 28.10

239 wickets from 153 ODIs at an average of 25.26

37 wickets, Johnson’s stunning haul in the 2013-14 Ashes. It was five short of breaking the record for most scalps in an Ashes series, but Rodney Hogg achieved that in six tests.

156.8 km/hr, the fastest speed his bowling was clocked at. It came in the 2013 Boxing Day test against England.

Twice, the number of times he broke Graeme Smith’s hand in 2009. Also broke Kumar Sangakkara’s hand in 2012, while the menacing paceman broke Ryan McLaren’s arm in 2014.
