I have achieved a lot as captain: Ponting

     Despite suffering a humiliating Ashes defeat and facing several ups and downs during his captaincy in the recent past, Australia cricket captain Ricky Ponting believes that he has achieved a lot as the skipper of the Oz team. Regretting the two consecutive Ashes defeats in England, Ponting said his record still speaks for his performance. "I will be remembered as the guy that lost the Ashes twice in a row in England, but if you look at other things I've been able to achieve as captain, a lot of it hasn't been achieved in the game before," Punter said. Ponting said he hope people would remember him for his brilliant stint at captaincy and the outstanding results and not for the failures. "We won two consecutive World Cups without losing a single game. 16 consecutive Test wins. A whitewash against England at home last time, and nearly doing something that hasn't been done in the history of the game, which was to win a seven-match one-day series. They are the sort of things that aren't spoken about much. A lot at the moment is talking about things that haven't been as successful," The Sydney Morning Herald quoted the Oz captain, who has the second best record as captain, as saying. Ponting has won 39 Tests and lost only 11, marginally behind Steve Waugh's stupendous 41-9 record.
