Bio

Ricky Ponting was a sight to behold when in full bloom and an uncompromising fighter, refusing to give an inch on the cricket field, never taking a backward step. Ponting scored 13,378 runs in 168 Tests, second only to Sachin Tendulkar’s 15,921, and 13,704 runs in 375 one-day internationals, third behind Tendulkar and Kumar Sangakkara. Ponting was part of three ICC Cricket World Cup-winning squads, in 1999, 2003 and 2007, the last two as captain of the side. He is, in fact, Australia’s most successful Test captain too, having led the team to 48 wins in 77 games, superior to Steve Waugh’s mark of 41 from 57.
