Ricky Ponting announces his retirement
RUMOUR CONFIRMED: Former Australian captain Ricky Ponting has announced his retirement from test cricket, with the Perth test to be his last.
The Perth test will be the 37 year old's 168th test, equalling Steve Waugh's Australian record.
A late rumour to the 3AW Breakfast rumour file, 'Punt on Ponting' correctly claimed his retirement would be announced today.
Ponting told the press conference that after scores of four, 16 and a duck so far this series against South Africa, now was the right time to step down.
"Over the last couple of weeks my level of performance hasn't been good enough," he said.
"My passion and love for the game hasn't changed one bit, right through the last 12 or 18 months when things probably haven't been as I'd liked them."
Ponting told a press conference he would continue to play with Tasmania and Hobart Hurricanes for the rest of the summer.
Ponting said the upcoming test held great importance, and he could leave the game with Australia beating South Africa in Perth to re-gain the #1 ranked team position.
"My immediate focus now...is what we're presented with tomorrow," he said.
"We're going into what I believe is almost like a Grand Final.
"I'm hungrier than ever and want this win probably more than any game that I've ever played in."
Ponting made his test debut in December 1995 against Sri Lanka in Perth, has scored more than 13,000 test runs and will retire with an average of 52.
Matt -proudly Un-Australian, how can you make a comment about either Aussie rules or cricket when you obviously know zero, nil, nought, nothing about either. You are the sort of dill that Aussie can do without and I feel so sorry for you as it appears that you are deaf, dumb, stupid and can't read or you would know who Ricky Ponting is.GIW Monday 3 December, 2012 - 2:52 PM
Sorry.....but Punters "Use By" date has been well over for a number of years..
Had he not retired i,m sure the selection panel would finally have dropped him.
We need to find an Amla or Duplessi very soon.david mark Sunday 2 December, 2012 - 11:40 PM
Timely retirement means wise decision, sportsmanâ??s decision. He was a respected among Australian cricket like Sachin Tendulkar in Indian cricket. Only a difference between the two is Ponting didnâ??t wait till his removalâ?¦ about Sachin better NO COMMENT.Rahul Sunday 2 December, 2012 - 4:27 AM
Thank's Ricky you always turned your back on those media knockers and came out on the pitch shining like a true champion. That's what Aussies loved about you!Jillian Friday 30 November, 2012 - 7:14 AM
