South Africa’s 1-0 win over Australia in the latter’s den asserted that they deserve the number one ranking in Tests. At the same time, it wasn’t an easy win for the Proteas.

Ricky Ponting’s decision to quit from the game after the Perth Test did not come as surprise to anybody, but it did add to the long list of veterans who bid good bye to the game this year.

Ricky Ponting’s decision to retire after the end of the Perth Test has set tongues wagging as to whether Sachin Tendulkar would also follow suit. After all, both have been having an equally poor run in international cricket for a couple of seasons now.
