Punter Joins 10,000 League

Ricky Ponting became the seventh batsman to score 10,000+ runs in Test Matches. He is the third Australian after Allan Border and Steve Waugh to join this elite league. He is also the second highest centurion in Test Matches. He achieved this feat in front of a small crowd at Sir Vivian Richards Ground and that was a sort of dampener to this wonderful occasion. Just compare this with the way the crowd celebrated when Rahul Dravid achieved the same feat against South Africa in Chennai.

But Ricky Ponting didn’t make it as memorable and fell after adding four more runs to the tally. He has scored most of his runs batting at No.3 and admitted that this move helped him to achieve whatever he has. He is one marvelous batsman to look at when in full bloom.
