About Ricky Ponting (from Wikipedia Page)

Ricky Thomas Ponting is an Australian cricket coach, commentator, and former cricketer. He is considered one of the most successful captains in international cricket history, with 220 victories in 324 matches with a winning ratio of 67.91%.

Ponting was captain of the Australian national team during its ‘golden era’; between 2004 and 2011 in Tests and 2002 and 2011 in One Day Internationals (ODIs).

He is a specialist right-handed batsman, an excellent slip/close catching fielder, as well as a very occasional bowler. He was named “Cricketer of the Decade 2000”.

Ponting is widely considered to be one of the best batsmen of the modern era, alongside players such as Sachin Tendulkar of India and West Indian Brian Lara. On 1 December 2006, he reached the highest rating achieved by a Test batsman for 50 years, though this was surpassed by Steve Smith in December 2017.

He stands second in the list of cricketers by number of international centuries scored behind Sachin Tendulkar.
