    Does Ponting own the game of cricket??

    Can't believe what Ponting gets away with these days.
    I've never known a captain who constantly moans like Ponting when absolutely everything doesn't go his way. Whether its when the sub fielder ran him out in England, when he got no-balled in the ODI against NZ for having only 2 men inside the circle or tonight when the umpires decided on badlight. Everytime he spits the dummy big time. And more often than not, its when HE'S made a mistake that he throws his toys out of the cot and blames everyone around him. Today for example, it was his mistake for not declaring a good 1/2 hour before he did that S.A were only 2 down at stumps.

    IMO he become a spoilt brat and seems to treat the umpires, opposition and officials like 2nd rate citizens - like he owns the game !!

    Very good post and point. You are very much on the money, when things don't go his way he throws his toys out of the cot and cries like baby. I hate almost as much as I hate Sean Fitzpatrick, perhaps even more.

    Hey hey.......At least Fitzy actually had some tact in his influencing the ref, he wasn't nearly the spoilt brat Pontings turning out to be

    Yeah he's a bit of a whining jackass. He's not alone though, Graeme Smith is one as well. Ganguly too, though more arrogant than a whiner.

    faircall...To be honest, I've always had a lot of time for Ponting as a cricketer, so I suppose i'm disappointed with the way he's been carrying on recently. Whereas I've never liked G. Smith and just expect that kind of thing from Him

    No Lara does, Ponting just chipped in. I've really lost respect for him since he became captain. He's a brilliant batsman but to be honest I respect Smith more as a captain. Although I can tolerate Ponting's books, unlike Steve Waugh. I just bought his Ashes diary...should be interesting. Especially to see what he says on Bangladesh

    But you're right...arrogant dummy-spitting brat.

    Competitive isnt defined as 'moaning when things dont go your way and blaming everyone else when you bollox up'. Try checking the english dictionary first.

    In all seriousness though, Ponting is an absolute imbecile in my opinion - there are very few players in world cricket who I genuinely can't stand, but he's top of the list. Even if he is a Somerset player. Joint second on the list are Hayden and Gilchrist, shortly followed by Charl Willoughby and Ganguly.
