In my estimation, Ponting has played his last innings. Definitely his last test innings, possibly his last as an international as well (that he would want to prolong the trauma with the inevitable loss of the World Cup as well is beyond comprehension).
Small man, Great Batsman.
Third best bats amongst his contemporaries. Brilliant attacking bat, courageous in adversity, outstanding fielder. Middling captain, gloating winner, whining loser, classless sledger, petulant narcissist and master of the weasel words.
Won two World Cups, lost three Ashes. 12000 runs at 53 with 39 centuries.
