    To my knowledge, Ranatunga never faced calls (however idiotic) for his resignation from within his own country.

    Or were those aimed at Ponting solely from Peter Roebuck?

You wouldn't be wrong in saying he wasn't an inspiring captain in the mould of Imran or Worrell, and you would never see him doing something like this but he never had to, really.
    LOL. Out of all the famous inspirational speeches you choose that? Gold
