Ricky Ponting

Ricky Ponting

It was in 2010 onset; Ricky Ponting made a last significant contribution to his team.  This time in the last five Group matches, Ricky has not made any remarkable score, which seems that something is out of the place. He made just a non-captain, a non-striker (to be more precise) score of 28 against Zimbabwe, 36 against Kenya is not news for the Australians.

Ponting has a strong hope that he is saving all the big shots in the future matches, but he did not define when that future is to come. This sudden dip in his performance is shocking because of the reputations created in the past and the gravity of the responsibility he beholds as a captain! A hat-trick in World Cup is not enough for the Australians, they certainly wish more.

Ricky is a very diplomatic person and a captain with cleverish statements. When asked for his average performances in the past one year, he shrewdly replied about his squad’s opening batsmen, Brad and Watson, and also he mentioned the beautiful rapport between the top-order players, which was very evident and unasked. He made the team play and scored low himself with the comfort that his men would be there to make the game a child’s play, one such was Haddin. Ponting’s push to Haddin made him improvise his striking styles and score better; soon Ricky’s figures seemed to fade.

The match ahead, against Pakistan will decide their next destination, to the quarter-finals.

Hello folks!

I am Bharathi Murali, 20, a Chemical Engineering student who always look at journalists or journalism students with a little jealousy in my eyes. I belong to Coimbatore now put up in Chennai. Besides writing, blogging I like traveling (on my bike), photography and silence. I have strong belief in philosophy. With regard to sports I just love watching them on TV when it comes to playing them I have tried to play most of the Indian sports with shallow knowledge in each. I am also a part of the University Basketball team and guess more than scoring I take care of defence better and well known for the fouls that I generally commit! I blog at www.thebhavachakra.blogspot.com. In one line I have always admired Bhagat Singh more than Gandhi, I support radicalism!
