Australia looking for new number three PERTH: Australian coach Mickey Arthur says Ricky Ponting's retirement opens the door for Shane Watson to drop further down the batting order, but would not be drawn on the contenders to replace him.   Watson returned from a calf injury in the third Test against South Africa, making 10 and 25 batting at number three as South Africa won by 309 runs to take the series 1-0.   Despite establishing himself as a Test opener in recent years, there has been speculation about Watson's best role in the team and his ability to continue to perform with both bat and ball given his long injury history.   He only bowled nine overs in each innings in Perth but Arthur said the retirement of Ponting, who batted at four, offered the opportunity to drop the powerful right-hander down a slot for the Sri Lanka series.   Arthur said the selectors were keen to replace Ponting with a batsman who ...

Ponting cites Lara as most dangerous opponent  PERTH: Newly retired Ricky Ponting says while India's Sachin Tendulkar was the best batsman he played against, West Indian Brian Lara was the opponent he feared most.   Ponting pulled stumps on his Australian record-equalling 168-Test career at the conclusion of the third Test loss to South Africa in Perth on Monday.   In 17 years of Test cricket, which produced 13,378 runs at 51.85 and made him the second-highest runscorer in Test history behind Tendulkar, Ponting said the ...
Australian press blast PERTH: Australian media on Tuesday blasted the national team's "monumental failure" in the third Test against South Africa while lamenting the end of former skipper Ricky Ponting's illustrious career.   South Africa thumped the Australians by 309 runs in Perth to hold on to their number one Test ranking and ruin an emotional farewell for Ponting, who bowed out after a 17-year Test career.   Set an improbable 632 runs to win, Australia were dismissed for 322 with a ...

Smith tips England for Ashes glory  PERTH: South African captain Graeme Smith has tipped England to win the 2013 Ashes Test series against Australia, saying home advantage will make the difference.   Smith is in a good position to judge the merits of the two sides, with the Proteas having wrapped up their second successive series win in Australia on Monday, the first visiting team to do so since the West Indies in 1992-93.   In August, the South Africans completed the same feat in ...
No fairytale ending for Ponting  PERTH: Ricky Ponting put on a brave face after he was denied a fairytale ending when dismissed for eight in his final Test innings Monday, bringing the curtain down on a glittering 17-year career.   Ponting, the second-highest Test run-scorer of all-time behind India's Sachin Tendulkar, announced his impending retirement before the showdown with South Africa in Perth after a record-equalling 168 Tests for Australia.   The 37-year-old, who said he was more nervous for his final Test than ...
