Salute Billy Murdoch

Australia’s finest early captain – and certainly the most militant – Billy Murdoch was a cultured technician, quick on his feet and at his best, impossible to contain when set. Scorer of the first two double-centuries in Australian-first-class cricket, in 1881-82, he also notched the first treble: 321 for NSW against Victoria in Sydney for […]

Poor Scheduling Pivotal

KEN PIESSE SAYS: Those in control of Australian cricket can blame only themselves for the loss of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy, even before Friday’s Sydney Test. They were stood over and bullied by their Indian counterparts. Downgrading Brisbane to also-ran status — and a coming Test with lowly Sri Lanka — was a huge mistake. The […]

Harsha Bhogle : Christmas Test Dinner

Harsha Bhogle has been covering Indian cricket since his teen years working for All India Radio. Most Australians first heard his dulcet tones and impeccably spoken Indian English when the ABC engaged him to describe India’s matches during their 1991-92 tour here, and then at the tail-end of that season for the ICC’s World Cup […]

Patron

Ricky Ponting

After retiring from a career as one of the world’s best cricketers, Ricky has now joined the board of the Ponting Foundation. Off the field, since 2002 Ricky and his wife Rianna have raised in excess of $10 million to help young Australians and their families beat cancer. In 2008 Ricky and Rianna established the Ponting Foundation to provide focus to their fundraising efforts.

In 2012 Ricky was appointed as an Officer in the General Division of the Order of Australia (AO); not only for his extraordinary cricketing achievements, but also for his distinguished service to the community through the establishment of the Ponting Foundation.

We are honoured to have Ricky as our patron with the Australian Cricket Society
