Ricky Ponting - a great driver & a great puller ! Thats one thing that really stood out for me. Enriched the game by his feats. Ricky Ponting came out of that very typical Australian mould of batsmen. He was the quintessential Aussie batsman in style & approach.
Sad to see Ricky Ponting Retiring. Absolute legend of the game. So proud to have played international cricket against him.
Punter n Lara could terrorise an attack . All time great.
