STATISTICS

Ponting - Master of Both Formats


Australian captain Ricky Ponting has started the New Year on a grand note. The first Test of 2006, the third of the ongoing series between Australia and South Africa, is his 100th.

Ponting also ended 2005 on a remarkable high. He is only the fourth batsman in cricketing history after Brian Lara, Greg Chappell and Vivian Richards to top the run aggregates in both Tests and ODIs in the same calendar year. Just for the record, there are also four bowlers who hold a similar distinction in terms of wickets taken in both versions of the game.
