Ricky Ponting gets nostalgic sharing photo of longest used bat

first_imgMELBOURNE: Former Australia captain Ricky Ponting on Tuesday shared pictures of his favourite cricket bat that he used most in his illustrious career.”Five international hundreds with this baby, four of them against South Africa. The 120 and 143* were made in my 100th Test at the SCG. “And the 164 was made in the famous 434 v 438 ODI at the Wanderers. Used it for as long as I could and as you can see it’s pretty worn out,” Ponting said in a tweet.
