Ponting scores ton in final first class game

5:57 am on 13 July 2013

The former Australian cricket captain Ricky Ponting has ended his first class career with an unbeaten 169 for his English county side Surrey.

It was the 82nd first-class hundred for the 38-year-old Tasmanian, who will retire from all forms of cricket after the Champions League in October.

Ponting retired from test cricket last December and from the one-day game in February last year.

He's test cricket's second-highest run scorer behind India's Sachin Tendulkar.
