You think this is bad Ricky? Just wait ’til Melbourne. (Tooting Trumpet)

Ricky Ponting & Simon Katich at the crease. England v Australia Day 2, Fifth Test, The Oval, 21 August 2009

  1. “Nearly two months to the day since Michael Jackson died. Chamone.”

  2. No one knows for sure what happened out on the crease that day: Some say a mysterious cloud hovered above Ponting before dissipating rapidly; some say it was the spectre of the new Golf GTI that changed him; some have said that the Devil himself was in the crowd. But, whatever it was that happened at The Oval, all we know is that Ponting never batted successfully against England again.

  4. “OI! when I said we need to hold on to our wickets, I didn’t mean literally!”

  5. Embarassed by his LBW gaffe, Katich tries desperately to protect his valuables from his captain’s death ray eyeball-activated lasers.

  6. The earthquake has left the oval sloping terribly towards the Bedser Stand as Ponting changes gears in contemplation.

  7. Ponting starts to regret waiting till after the ashes to get the cream.

  8. Ponting realises, at the worst time possible, that someone’s played the superglue trick on his glove. (Graeme Swann innocently walks past…)

  11. They’re still there Ricky – we don’t lose our cojones until Adelaide next year.

  12. Even with arms matted with fur, Ricky still needed a woolly jumper.

  13. You haven’t got your Baggy Green down there have you Ricky?

    Comment by tootingtrumpet — December 7, 2010 @ 5:41 pm

  14. You need both hands on the bat Ricky – just call for a box.

  15. “Right, Ricky. The ball’s going to pitch here…HERE Ricky! Pay attention! All you have to do is play down though leg and…have you put a box in? Did you put a box in Ricky? For Christ’s sake Ponting you really don’t care do you? Now look me in the eyes. Good. Repeat after me: I am Ricky Ponting. I am the 2nd highest Test run scorer in world history. I must bat well. The people after me are useless. I am not an inept captain. I am… Oh look if you’re not going to pay attention then you can just get out. pathetic little cry baby.

  16. Flintoff: So I asked the guy, “How much to hire a pedalo?” He quoted some ridiculous tourist price so I thought, “Bugger that, I’ll just come back at night when noone’s around.”
