I grew up watching Lara, Ponting, Kallis. These are the legends of the game. After Steve Waugh, Ponting took the Aussie team to a whole different level.

Legend!!

He's a class batsman! the record obsessed batsman Sachin should learn from him. Wish him well though been a great servant for the game.

Shame to see such a great batsman go but he made the right decision in the end and also perfect timing after a very important series. Now the next batsman to come in will play an easier series against Sri Lanka.

Definitely one of the all time great batsmen who was very tough and arrogant but had records to back himself up. Gave it his all for the green and gold and the man deserves every inch of respect. Best of luck to Ponting and hope to see him being a commentator some day.

People are talking about end of an era, in the sense that Ponting is the last man standing from that great Aussie team that dominated cricket in early 2000's. Everyone else from that team retired, him and lee were the last ones to hang on for as long as they possibly could.

Every time I think of Ponting the first thing that pops in my head is his glorious hook shot. I love the way he pushes his body just a little to the front, and gets in the position to play his favorite shot. I don't think current Aus team will miss him much, considering he hasn't been able to contribute recently. But nonetheless a huge loss for Aus cricket in general.

^Phil Hughes will most likely come in for Ponting. Despite struggling in Tests initially, he still does have 3 Test hundreds and 20 FC hundreds at the age of 23. I'm a big fan of him and think he'll be the next big thing in Australian cricket. Khawaja is a very good prospect as well.

The era is not over. Kallis and Sachin (FFS) is still there.

Also stop mentioning that one close BD vs AUS match. It makes you guys sound like you guys dont follow cricket. And that's the only one inning of RP you can recall...

hughes or khawaja should come in....a good move i think. ponting is a great of the game but it's a shame his record doesn't show it, he was at one time averaging just a touch under 60. had he retired a few years ago his stats would still stack up well, and although they're not bad i reckon he will be overlooked a bit when people look back at the greats because his record isn't quite there, but boy was he a ridiculously great batsman at his peak.

Soft-core, sissies, Darvid-Sachin minmin marka fans never liked him, won't like him. But he is a powerful figure. It was more fun and exciting watching Ricky go at everyone than Dravid Sachin be gentleman, put their head down like a coward. Yeah gentlemen's game, eff that. Sissies.

Clark and Hussy still remains from that era although they were late entries of that era

Sad to see him leave with a loss and a couple of shabby scores. No grand exit, but that takes nothing away from an extraordinary career.

Punter's announcement of retirement took me back in time to those childhood days. He was my childhood hero. Only Sachin and Kallis remain. The near end of a wonderful era of cricketers who were many of our childhood heroes.

Farewell.

If I look back, his century in the 2003 WC final against India is what I shall always remember.

With the amount of top players that are retiring from the other teams, it makes things a lot easier for Bangladesh if you know what I mean

One of the best batsmen ever to walk this world, one of the best captain (probably is the best- just look at what he has achieved) and a strong character's era comes to an end.

Good luck for the future!

One of the greats. He'll be missed. It was a shame he departed when his form was poor. I would've liked for him to stay a little longer and retire after one last Ashes.
