Ricky Ponting Looking Upset – 23/11/12

It’s been a long time since we brought you Ricky’s antics, but a moment yesterday reminded us that he was not only still playing cricket, but that he’d managed to rid himself of his zimmer frame and shuffle his way onto a cricket pitch. Before falling over.

Yes! In possibly one of the most senior duels ever to take place on a cricket pitch, RP (37 years, 340 days at time of writing) and Jacques Kallis (a nipper at 37 years, 38 days) faced off, the latter comprehensively winning, although later pulling a hammy for his troubles. The video is below, but it led to cracking photos of the gallant loser in all sorts of acrobatic positions, as Mark Nicholas put it – ‘Ponting all over the place; humiliated…’

First – the video evidence:

Next, a photo of the incident:

“What am I doing down here? Last thing I remember I was captain and we hadn’t lost the Ashes for 19 years…”

Wonderful. How the mighty are fallen (literally) and, unequivocally, looking upset…

  1. This is brilliant, thanks for making my day! Nothing is a good as watching Ricky Ponting fail (especially in comic style) though I would like Clarke to do the same come Ashes time!
