Ponting has retired.
Perhaps not a "gentleman" in Test Cricket terminology but one of the most prolific batsman in cricket.
His impact both on and off the field has always been phenomenal.
Its sad that in the past year or so many great legends have stepped away from the game.
Looks like we are going to have a shortage soon (SRT and Kallis are the last two left and neither of them is going to last for long).
