Ricky Ponting is counted among the finest batting talents produced by the Australian soil. Apart from a sensational cricketer evident from his sparkling numbers in the International cricket, he was a successful leader as he won 220 of the 324 matches he captained, securing a winning ratio of 67.91%.
Recently, the cricketer turned commentator looked back at his first Test as the skipper of the side. Ponting shared his Test jersey which was signed by his teammates after the end of the game. It was a laudable gesture from his unit as they shared encouraging messaging for the new skipper.
Not only that, he lauded the majestic batting shows of Damien Martyn and Darren Lehmann who scored awe-inspiring centuries in second innings to take Australia out of the muddle. As a result, the yellow jersey defeated Sri Lanka by 197 runs. Ponting’s elite show as skipper continued in the next 2 games as he secured a 3-0 clean sweep in the three-game Test series.
