Photo Thursday – Ricky Ponting – Cricketer
Photo Thursday this week celebrates the achievements of former Australian cricket captain Ricky Ponting who retired after the 2012-13 season. On Thursday night a tribute match was held in his hometown of Launceston, Tasmania with all proceeds going to the Ponting Foundation which provides money for children with cancer in Tasmania. A host of current and former cricketers and some Hawthorn and North Melbourne footballers played in the two sides captained by Ricky and Adam Gilchrist. It was a very entertaining match and is the reason that Photo Thursday is so late this week.
