The Punter Rolls In
Former Australia captain Ricky Ponting was born on December 19, 1974 at Launceston, Tasmania. Ponting, arguably, Australia's greatest batsman after Sir Don Bradman, made 40,130 runs and scored 71 centuries in his 17-year international career.
Australia lost the Ashes thrice under his charge, but he also led the Aussies to victories in the 2003 and 2007 World Cups and was also at the helm of their all-conquering Test team. Here's a look at some offbeat images from the 'Punter''s illustrious career. (CYCSPL)
