Ricky Ponting is one of the biggest names in Australian cricket. He was one of the greatest skippers he Australian team ever had as the Baggy greens lost only a handful of matches across formats under his captaincy.
Ponting initially had some big shoes to fill as he took over the leadership from Steve Waugh. But the right-hander handled it quite well in Australia’s tour of South Africa in 2002 in which he not only won the game for Aussies but also completed his century with a last ball six off spinner Paul Adams.
The 45-year-old, recently took a dig at Adams on a video of the incident from 2002 as he wrote, “I think this was as excited as I'd been on the field ... and I couldn't have asked for a better ball to hit for six. Thanks Paul,”
