What happened to the man who ran out Ponting?
It’s good to see the Aussies aren’t engaging in any kind of schadenfreude where Gary Pratt - destined to be known as the man who ran out Ricky Ponting - is concerned. The Australian has traced his career path post-Ashes 2005 and found him released by Durham and now playing lower league football. But cricket remains his true love and he has been given a contract with the minor county Cumbria.
For Pratt’s part, it’s good to see that he’s not bitter about being released by Durham, blaming a lack of opportunities on the captain Mike Hussey who is, of course, Australian.
