Perth, Nov 29: Australia batting great Ricky Ponting Thursday decided to call time on his illustrious career post the final Test against South Africa here, the place where he made his Test debut in 1995, drawing rich tributes from the cricketing world.




Ponting told reporters here that the match starting Friday would be his 168th and last.

"It struck me only a few weeks ago that my preparation was good as it'd been. But my performance hadn't been good enough for the team. I'm very comfortable with the decision I've made. Timing-wise it's the right time, at the end of a series. There's not much more I can give," said Ponting.
