Ponting shared a picture of two baggy green caps. While the one was a brand new cap, the other was the one he wore in his debut match, and continued to wear for “140 odd Tests.”

“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 140odd tests,” Ponting wrote.
