Ricky Ponting RETIRES.... ONE OF THE GREATS! I always got excited playing AUS, so I could watch him bat up close. Well done Punter! #legend


@imVkohli (Virat Kohli)


Ricky ponting what an absolute legend. Iam glad I had the honour of playing against him. Take a bow #legend #respect.


@cricketwallah


Ponting's decision to retire is well reasoned. Says he is not contributing enough to team. That is the time to go, whatever the age...


@sardesairajdeep


No one played the pull shot better than Ponting. No one has straight driven better than Tendulkar. Legends both.


@cricketaakash


2012 seems to be the year of goodbyes...first Dravid, then Laxman and now Ponting.

@stumped4aduck


Ponting was the last player remaining from the Taylor/Waugh era. End of an era. Was the world's best bat from '02-'08


@iKnightSRK


Ricky Ponting retires....one of the best player I disliked most. But a wiser decision to call it a day. Legend in his own right. #punterc
