Our ‘Ricky Ponting Masterclass’ series continued this Saturday with ‘Episode 2 – Inside the Baggy Green’.
Get a fascinating insight into the mind and technique of one of cricket’s greatest ever batsmen as Ricky talks us through his signature shot – the pull - and how he became a key player for the all-conquering Australia Test side.
Ponting, who called time on a record-breaking international career in December 2012, captained Australia to an unprecedented 220 victories, won the Ashes five times and the World Cup three times.
Earlier this summer, we spent a day with the legend to find out what made him so special and get his reflections on his stellar career.
In ‘Episode 1 – The Making for a Run Machine’ (which you can watch in full by signing in to the video here), we went back to Ponting’s roots to find out where his love of cricket came from and his earliest memories of The Ashes.
We also join him in the nets in the indoor school at Lord’s to get his thoughts on his own set-up, including stance and pick-up, his batting routines and techniques for keeping his mind clear at the crease.
From his early days in Tasmania through to becoming one of cricket’s all-time greats, this is Ricky’s story in his own words…
Watch ‘Episode 2 – Inside the Baggy Green’ at 10am this Saturday on Sky Sports 2.
