Ricky Ponting Net Worth $65 Million

Ricky Thomas Ponting was born on December 19, 1974, in Launceston, Tasmania, Australia. He is the eldest brother in the family and has three younger brothers and sisters. He started to play cricket at a very young age and even took part in the Northern Tasmania junior cricket competition. There he played against children under 13 years, of age and showed himself to be a talented cricket player. That’s how the net worth established by Ponting started to rise, but it was only the beginning of a great career.

Of course, we should mention that Ponting’s cousin, Greg Campbell, also had some influence on Ricky’s decision to become a cricketer. In the beginning of his career Ponting was earning net worth while playing successfully with the Tasmanian Tigers. Already in 1995 Ponting’s net worth increased as he began to play in the international leagues, including against India and South Africa. Later he became the captain of the national team, and until 2011 it was the main source of the net worth earned by Ricky.

R. Ponting has published many books about cricket. Together with such people as Brian Murgatroyd and Peter Staples, Ricky has written nine books: the first one was released in 1998. After a long gap another book was released and entitled “Ricky Ponting’s World Cup Diary”. Then, after publishing “My First Year” and “Ashes Diary”, the “Captain’s Diary” series started. The most recent book was published in 2013 by Harpersports and entitled “Ponting: At The Close Of Pay”. All these books show the experience of Ricky Ponting and can be considered as the diary of modern cricket as well as of a cricketer. These books added a huge sum to the overall amount of Ponting’s net worth, so there is no wonder that today R. Ponting earns so much money.

Talking about R. Ponting as a captain of Australian, we can sum up everything by the fact that he did this job very well and became admired among the other players. He is known to be a captain who has the ability to make the team more united, but still, some people admit that Ponting had no great imagination and could have given more freedom to the other players. Still nowadays we all admit Ricky Ponting has been one of the greatest cricket players of all time, and there is no doubt that Ponting’s net worth was earned absolutely fairly thanks to his great abilities as a player.

Quotes

#Quote
1I know when I've been playing a lot of golf it takes me a while to get back into cricket again. It's not so much the different shape of the swings, more the fact that you are stationary when you hit a golf ball. In cricket you have to move forward or back, which is an instinctive timing thing.
2How much golf I actually play depends on whom you ask. My wife says I'm out there every day. If you ask me, the cricket is getting in the way of the golf.
3I think any time you lose an Ashes series, especially with the hype and build-up surrounding it and the pride we have as Australians playing against England, that's always hard to take.
4We have played so well that the guys have really made my job fairly easy.
5It's nice to put your hand up and do the big things the team requires of you.
6Every decision you make in life, not just on the sporting field - a lot of time and energy goes into it. You think things through before you make decisions and you always think the decision you make at the time is going to be the right one.
7We knew that if we had to win the World Cup, the defensive side of the game had to be better, which means bowlers will have to bowl tight and we will have to field better.
8I want to be a dad, first and foremost. I want to be a good father. I've spent so much of my life on the move and travelling around the world that just to set up a home for my family and be a good dad is something that motivates me.
9I was always fiercely determined and driven to succeed.
10I had big shoes to fill, but the way we have been playing has made the transition easy.
11It's a song that we sing after we win a Test match. We sing it after every one-day series win. It's been passed down through the generations. It's the culture of the Australian team.
12It's always good to win a Test match and if you win it comfortably, it can leave a few psychological marks on opposition sides.
13It was a long, hard, tough day. We managed to just sneak through, it was an unbelievable Test match.
14I've told the guys to keep their heads up. I really believe we played a great game here.
