#4 Mitchell Johnson
Making his international debut in 2005, Mitchell Johnson reached the summit of his career in 2013-14, when he collected 59 wickets at 15.23, in eight Tests against strong opponents. He took a mammoth total of 313 wickets in his Test career.
The belligerent seamer was one of the most noticed players in the Aussie side, known for his hot-headed attitude on the field and a surprisingly ‘cool as a cucumber’ attitude off the field. Johnson was not one to shy away from displaying his emotions and frequently got into on-field spats with his opponents, often going overboard with the sledging.
The 34-year-old called it a day on 17th November, 2015, sighting a lack of performances and his missing temperament, which got him to that stage.
“I am really happy with my decision and I just lost that hunger in the end to play out on those tough days, that’s where my decision came,” he said after his retirement.
