Ponting to reveal all in memoir 'At the Close of Play'

Sydney, Oct 12 : Australian cricketer Ricky Ponting is soon going to release his memoirs in a publication titled 'At the Close of Play'.

According to, as a cricketer, Ponting always seemed more adept at deflection than reflection and he was direct, honest and straightforward, but not one to dwell on the past.

In writing about his life, he was forced to contemplate in detail the many triumphs, the occasional disappointments and re-visit the occasional controversies and it also allowed him to re-live a happy but truncated childhood, the report said.

Ponting said that moving away from Lanceston at 15 and going to the Cricket Academy, and being a professional cricketer for 21 years, did not give him a chance to think about what had happened.

The legend said that the environment at his time was all about looking after each other and protecting each other, not hanging them out to dry which he thought had been happening.
