Ahmedabad, Mar. 26 (ANI): While he will have a four-month break from international cricket after the tour to Bangladesh early next month, Australian skipper Ricky Ponting will no doubt spend a considerable amount of time thinking about what led to his team’s World Cup elimination.

“It might take me a while to think about my own innings,’ the 36-year-old said.

He added: ‘As things turn out, it could be my last World Cup game. If I end up having made a hundred in my last World Cup game then I guess I can be pretty happy at the end of the day. But I’ve always been one of those guys that’s never really reflected on what I’ve done until a lot later, never really been a stats man - that doesn’t worry me.’

The Sydney Morning Herald quoted him as saying that he was devastated by the defeat against India in Thursday’s quarterfinal.

When asked whether he felt like the ‘tragic hero’ of the quarterfinal, he said:. ‘I honestly don’t know how to answer that question,’ he replied.

‘Am I the tragic hero? I don’t feel like much of a hero at the moment,’ he added. (ANI)
