Perth, Dec 3: Ricky Ponting bid adieu to international cricket on Monday with just 8 runs in his final Test innings against South Africa here at WACA ground.

It was not a winning farewell for former Australia captain. Ponting, coincidentally, ended his international cricket journey at the same ground where he had begun in 1995.

Ponting's family was at the ground on Monday. South Africa players gave a guard of honour when he walked out to bat for the last time.

Here are the images from Ricky Ponting's final Test.
