My favourite piece of memorabilia: Ricky Ponting
On his retirement, his wife Rianna Jennifer Cantor and Cricket Australia, gifted him the Australian baggy green that he wore throughout his Test career and the new one that he had received.

“This is my favourite piece of memorabilia gifted to me by Rianna and Cricket Australia when I retired. A brand new cap on the left and my pride and joy on the right, looking a bit worse for wear after about 140 odd tests,” he said in his tweet.
