    Come dust bowl wicket or green top wicket
    There's no one better to bowl at cricket
    Moustache gleaming, the ball is seaming
    The demonic in his eyes is gleaming

    He stares hard at the opening bat
    Looking down on that stinking rat
    If the opening bat gives him a pout
    He'll just get him out

    He's so tough he could bowl up hilly
    Everyone's fave, Dennis Lillee

    Reasonable but would be much better if you declared your love for Ponting to give the poem more structure.

    Not nonsensical enough to be compared with the OP in a good light but had its own charm 8 out of ten

    Ode to Hamish Bennett

    Hamish stood at the top of his mark
    He had been late to the game as he couldn't find a park

    Hamish had once dismissed Ponting on an off day
    Which had caused Dawood Ahmed much dismay

    Who would be his next victim Sachin, Warner
    or perhaps the real AB you say

    With his trademark delivery stride that looks like a broken down horse
    he would be on track to take a double hat trick on this day of course,

    Before injury would strike and unjustly curtail the great man like a boxer's jab,
    Never mind Hamish next time take a cab

    no rotten fruit please I am going with the standards of the thread.

    Hamish, no body knows even name of him
    But Ponting, there's great fame of him

    He's not from Farnham
    Likes PT Barnum
    Doesn't do much harm, mmm

    Kept wicket
    Played at cricket
    Watched Lemony-Snicket
    Born in a thicket

    That last was a lie
    Won't wear a tie
    An ocean of cry
    All over my thigh

    Now retired
    Likes 4x4s
    Goes on tours
    to Zambia

    Now an architect
    Possibly circumspect
    Strange old dialect
    Owns a marmoset?

    I really like how it ends with a question. It really makes you think.

    What emotions did it bring out in you? Did it make you consider looking up marmosets on wikipedia?
