BIO: Ricky Ponting, nicknamed Punter, is an Australian cricketer, a former captain of the Australia national cricket team between 2004 and 2011 in Test cricket and 2002 and 2011 in One Day International cricket. He is a specialist right-handed batsman, catching fielder, as well as a very occasional bowler. He represents the Tasmanian Tigers in Australian domestic cricket, the Hobart Hurricanes in the Big Bash League, and has played in the Indian Premier League with the Kolkata Knight Riders in 2008. Ponting made his first-class debut for Tasmania in November 1992, at the age of 17, becoming the youngest Tasmanian to play in a Sheffield Shield match. After being involved in over 160 Tests and 370 ODIs, Ponting is Australia's leading run-scorer in Test and ODI cricket. He is one of only three players in history to have scored 13,000 Test runs. With a record of 48 victories in 77 Tests between 2004 and 31 December 2010, he is slated as the most successful captain of all time; while as a player he is also the only cricketer in history to be involved in 100 Test victories. As of 18 July 2012 Ricky¬†Ponting has 165 Test matches to his name and created history by becoming the most capped Australian player.
