Expert Review :
The autobiography of a legendary cricketer like Ricky Ponting, coming out soon after his retirement, is interesting to sports fans for many reasons. Besides the personal story, readers want to learn about the controversies and the incidents on field that earned him an image of being an aggressive personality.
Ponting does go into this side of his persona and explains how it might have developed even in the days he played for his cricket club, Mowbray Eagles, in Tasmania. That team, he says, believed in playing fair but playing tough. It shaped him as a cricketer and his attitude towards the game. Ponting has played in some of the greatest Australian cricket teams, first under Steve Waugh and later with Ponting himself as the Captain.
At Close of Play covers his personal life and his career and contains interesting anecdotes about team mates. He also discusses the Australian cricket team’s solidarity and camaraderie that led to an era when Australia completely dominated world cricket. He talks about triumphs and disappointments and also about the controversies.
The book was published by Harper Sport in 2013. This is a hardcover edition.
- Ponting talks about his personal life, his family, his wife Rianna and his charity work to aid kids suffering from cancer.
- He also discusses the Harbhajan Singh and Symonds’ ‘Monkeygate’ incident and the disappointment he felt over Australia’s handling of the incident.
