Product description

Love him or loathe him, Ricky Ponting is one of the biggest names in cricket, having been at the heart of so many memorable Ashes and Test encounters over the years. Coinciding with the end of Ponting's spectacular career, 'At the Close of Play' is a must-read for all cricket fans. For so long the scourge of English cricket, Ricky Ponting - unarguably one of cricket's all-time greats - looks back on the story of his remarkable life and career. With his customary honesty and candour, Ponting reflects on a lifetime at the crease - from childhood prodigy to the highs and lows of his extraordinary international career. But beyond the triumphs, scandals and his own private struggle to maintain his later form, this remarkable autobiography will offer rare insights into an elite sporting career with Ricky's reflections on leadership, captaincy, winning, defeat, competitiveness, teamwork, the greats of the game and the lessons learned at the helm of Australia's cricket team. This autobiography, of a very private man, and one who the English public loved to hate, will resonate with lovers of cricket as well as anyone who strives to reach the top of their chosen field.
