We all know that Ricky Pointing had won two world cups for Australia as a captain. He was also the member of the team which won the 1999 World Cup under the leadership of Steve Waugh.
Punter, as he often called, was always compared with Sachin Tendulkar during his playing days. There was always a question that who is the better player of both, i.e., either Sachin or Ricky. Though Sachin always used to win the contest, Punter was also an amazing cricketer who can be compared with Sachin in terms of technique and quality. To keep it simple, he was as good as Sachin Tendulkar.
Ricky Ponting had a collection of a few awesome shots in his kitty, however, his trademark shot was Pull shot. He used to execute pull with ease and almost at will. Ricky mastered the art of pull shot at the Australian Academy of Sport during his training days, and from there it was no looking back for him.
Punter used to destroy the rhythm of bowlers by playing that particular shot. He also plays the drive and hooks shots extremely well, and this special skill of him made life more difficult for the fast bowlers. In fact, there are only a few players who can play pull shot as good as him, and without a doubt, Ricky Ponting occupies first place among such players.
