I was off from computer and internet for a few days, during the year end holidays. The thrill of going through some of the scenic mountains and farm lands was simply freshening.  This morning, while scanning through some articles, I caught the attention of Ian Chappell’s piece on Ricky Ponting. Good read, but touch sad to see a sad end to Ponting this way. A master on his on merit truly deserve a better end to his amazing test career. But then, sport is cruel and unpredictable at times. I don’t know whether Ponting has the same resolve as Tendulkar, who by the way is still going strong as ever.
