Funny, I got mixed feelings about this. As much as we all love to hate him, I think we do so with a certain amount of respect for him as a batsmen.

Been shite for a few years now, but before that.....f#$%k he was good.

Obviously couldn't handle the pressure of both playing and umpiring.

Mixed feeling but at this point it is a little disrespectful to say something bad about a guy so thanks for some good memories and enjoy your retirement.



Obviously my view should'nt stop anyone else from having a pop, rude not to.


ps Sachin, you might want to give this move some thought r.e. timing mate.

A lot of respect for one of the all time great batsmen, a tough opponent for many years & one you would definetely want in your side. Sometimes overstepped the mark with Umprires particularly recently & involved in my 2 favourite run outs (Pratt & Flintoff).
And the way he chewed that gum - didn't so much chew it as teach it a lesson!!
So long Punter it's been fun.

How will history remember Ricky Ponting?

1) One of the greatest batsmen of all time

2) A realy Sh*t captain

3) A bad looser
