A cricket video for Cricket World TV about the latest cricket news from http://www.cricketworld.com. Find us on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/cricketworld and Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/cricket_world as we look back on the career of Ricky Ponting after he announced his retirement on 29th November 2012.
Ricky Ponting retirement talk has heightened recently due to his loss of form in the Test arena – he had already retired from ODI and T20I cricket and resigned the Test captaincy last year.
In full flow, there can be little doubt that Ponting batting was one of the best players his country has ever produced, and he took some of the best catches you might wish to see during his 17-year Test career.
He will finish with 168 Test caps, over 13,000 runs and a record that means he will certainly be missed and both opponents and team-mates have already been quick to congratulate Ponting on his wonderful career.
Although plenty of people will remember accusations of Ponting cheating and indeed him being run out on a few occasions, there have been few better cricketers of his generation. What are your favourite Ponting memories?
