Australia's greatest ODI captain under whom they never
lost a single match in two consecutive World Cups(2003 and 2007), and
one of the very few cricketers worthy of being compared to Sachin
Tendulkar - Ricky Ponting was born on this day in 1974.
KANE ON A ROLL: 2014 is turning out be a fantastic
year for New Zealand's number three batsman in ODIs. His scores: 47, 16,
71, 77, 65, 60, 88, 10, 70*, 46, 123 and 97. With the World Cup round the corner, Williamson's form augurs well.
