Saw it discussed elsewhere that a Ponting SOS was vaguely alluded to. Now every Ashes since Australia last won one (yes younger readers it did happen in the distant past) has been full of these rumours about Warne. Alas, Australia's weakness (aside from a lack of culture and contributions to the wider world and an unhealthy sourness in defeat) is undoubtedly batting. Despite Ponting being a bit meh for the final stages of his career, will the media be crying out for him and more importantly will he play on it like Warne did/does?
I'm not gonna lie, I'm gonna miss hating that chimp this summer.
