Ricky Ponting Retirement Memorabilia

Ricky Ponting exits the game as a player who has captivated audiences for almost two decades. Today, as he announces he will complete his career at the very same ground that he made his debut all the way back in 1995, Ponting is leaving the game the way he has conducted his career, on his terms.

As a captain and as a batsman, Ricky Ponting can lay claim to being the greatest player of his generation. His ruthless attitudes towards opposition bowling attacks saw him amass an incredible 6 double centuries, 41 test centuries and the second most amount of test runs in history, 13,366. Three of those double centuries came in 2003, perhaps his best calendar year when he amassed an incredible 1503 runs at an average of 100.20. He finishes his career with 168 test matches to his name, equal with the great Steve Waugh as Australia’s most capped Test player.

Michael Clarke Domination

If there was any doubt, another double-century confirmed 2012 as the year of Michael Clarke.

It is a batting streak that is without peer. On a record breaking first day of the 2nd Test v South Africa the Australian Captain scored his second double-century in as many innings and became the first batsman to do so four times in a calendar year.

Previously sharing the record (3) with Don Bradman and Ricky Ponting, Clarke, who has another three Tests to play this year, has an average of 127.10, which is the second-highest for a single year (1000-plus runs in a year) behind Garry Sobers’ average of 144.33.

The classy right-hander has now scored 489 runs against South Africa this series, facing 655 balls being dismissed once. It is shaping as the best year ever enjoyed by an Australian batsman and conceivably could yet become the greatest plundering of runs in a calendar year in the history of cricket.

To celebrate this extraordinary 2012 year, SE Products in conjunction with Cricket Australia is proud to release this commemorative bat. Simply titled ‘Domination’ this bat pays tribute to Clarke’s record breaking year.
