Ricky Ponting swaps bat for pen

Ricky Ponting is swapping the cricket bat for a pen and writing his autobiography.

Report by

A day after Ponting retired from Test cricket, HarperCollins Publishers Australia announced today his end-of-career story will be released next November.

As one of the greatest cricketers to have worn the baggy green cap, Ponting is the highest Australian run-scorer of all time in Tests and one-day international cricket, behind only India’s Sachin Tendulkar among batsmen from all countries.

The autobiography will track his journey from his childhood in Tasmania, playing for the Mowbray Cricket Club’s third-grade side at 11 years old, through the highs and lows of his extraordinary international career to his retirement and future plans.
