Probably why Ricky (Ponting) looks like he does.
I’ve just looked it up and Ricky is 5 ft 10 in. I don’t believe that for one second. He’s a midget, the gnome as I call him, I even remember meeting him and I’m sure he wasn’t anywhere close to 6 ft.
Goes on a bit of a rant here:
He was a nice bloke actually. It was an unofficial world eleven (Australia, South Africa, Windies and India) against another unofficial world eleven.
That was a good game that. Lara was fielding down at deep extra (cover) eating and drinking with people about ten yards away from me. It was so strange watching him talk to people while the game was going on. I never found out why they were all there.
Some T.V Program they were doing I think.
