Don Bradman vs Ricky Ponting: Who is Number 1?
How does the career of Ricky Ponting rank against Don Bradman and the best Australian batsman of all-time?
It is a question that has no-doubt sparked many a heated discussion in pubs, lounge-rooms and practice nets around the country.
Well this morning Ross and John came as close to a definite answer as possible when they received a call from 84-year-old cricketing Encyclopaedia Ken.
Ken is one of the few people to see both Bradman and Ponting don the baggy green and he remembers the career innings of both cricketers as clear as each other.
"I saw Bradman play. I saw him bat on New Years Day in 1947. He made 79 and (went out) LBW to Norman Yardley and then made 49 in the second innings,"
"But I saw him play against India (in the Summer of 1947-48), he made 132 Not Out that day, he batted with Lindsey Hassett, and it was the most beautiful batting I've ever seen" Ken said.
And the answer to the question? Well Ross Stevenson asked Ken if Ricky Ponting was Australia's next best after The Don: "Indeed he is. He has been a marvellous player and it is just a shame that his form has fallen away over the last 2 or 3 matches or perhaps a little bit longer,”
"I think he has always been a credit to himself and the game" Ken said.
Ken hasn’t just kept his passion for cricket local telling Ross and John that his trip to watch Australia play at Lords was ‘the highlight of my life’.
"(I went to Lord’s) in 1997 and I saw every ball bowled even though 2 and a half days were lost by rain, but I saw absolutely every ball bowled" Ken boasted.
RUMOUR CONFIRMED: Ricky Ponting has announced his retirement from test cricket, with the Perth test to be his last. The 3AW Breakfast Rumour File was this morning told the retirement announcement would take place today.
Ross Stevenson and John Burns entertain listeners with their razor sharp wit and oddball humour every morning. And every day the best segments of their on-air - and sometimes off-air - program are published on 3AW.com.au.

No contest between Bradman & Ponting. It's got to be Bradman he did it all when there wasn't any thing like the back up modern players get today. Bradman played a lot less tests in an era when travelling was a major exercise and with out their families or the cash incentives.How can you make a comparison different times differnt type of game both great players who served their country magnificently and have their place in cricket history.Tony Evans Friday 30 November, 2012 - 11:44 AM
