I admire Ricky Ponting for his cricketing skills but not for his on field

I admire Ricky Ponting for his cricketing skills but not for his on field efforts particularly with his stupid sledging stuff. He looked like a lost man when the Indian team needed just 11 runs to win. For a moment I felt for him but yeah that's how it is. The Australian team is an ageing team, they are yet to find suitable replacements for Adam Gilchrist, Mathew Hayden, Shane Warne, and Glenn McGrath. These were the people who led Australia to famous victories world over. Shuan Tait is nuts throwing the ball around like a lost kid.
