Ricky Ponting’s farewell match will be remembered for 3 things:
1) One of the greatest batsmen in the history of the game, Ricket Ponting’s made his last appereance in Test cricket.
2) The special guard of honour that South African boys formed for Ricky.
3) And, for that hilarious when Nathan Lyon got a standing ovation by accident, after replacing Ricky Ponting.
Even Ponting’s wife Rianna was confused for a moment, nervously clapping as the new batsman made his way to the crease before realising it wasn’t her husband.
The WACA crowd were clearly disappointed when they, too, realised it wasn’t Ponting.
