Profile

From his teenage days, Ricky Ponting was termed a child prodigy for Australia. With a determined attitude and aggressive instincts, Ponting made a scintillating start to his international career and was marked as a future Australian skipper. In his debut match against Sri Lanka in 1995, the right-hander caught everyone's eye with a magnificent knock of 96 runs.

Ponting has picked up as a batsman in the past few years and has become one of the most prolific run scorers in International cricket. 'Punter' is brilliant against short pitch stuff and his timing through the off-side is impeccable. The Australian skipper is also a livewire on the field and it is hard for the batsmen to pinch a single when the Tasmanian is around.

Australia has done tremendously well under the leadership of Ponting. His aggressive and ruthless captaincy has helped his nation clinch two World Cups and a number of other major ICC trophies. The most famous Test victories for Ponting as a skipper have been the Adelaide Test against England in 2007, where the Aussies won even after conceding 550 runs in the first innings and against Pakistan at Sydney in 2009, where Australia were bowled out for a paltry 127 and the match has been termed as 'The Great Escape'. He was honoured with the ICC Player of the Year award for two consecutive years in 2006 and 2007.
