Ricky Ponting walked in to bat when Australia was at a strong position of 105/1. Ponting’s unbeaten 140* off 121 balls was a breathtaking display of aggressive yet controlled batting.
His century included 8 fours and 4 massive sixes, dismantling the Indian bowling attack. This knock of Ricky Ponting helped Australia to win 3rd ICC World Cup title.
