One of Australia’s best batsman and former Captain Ricky Ponting has informally retired from One Day Internationals. The 37-year-old Ponting has expressed this decision in a press conference at Sydney after he was axed from the CB Series by the Selectors following a string of low scores.
Although India failed to show the intensity with the bat and hence lost the first Test against Australia by 122 runs, the on-field rivalry with players from both sides rubbing each other the wrong was very much there.
The Boxing Day Test Match is hanging in the balance and most probably could head towards a climax tomorrow on the fourth day! The final session of play saw India breaking the Ponting-Hussey partnership that was threatening to take the game away.
