2005 Ashes series. Ponting found himself under immense pressure to perform as a captain and a batsman in the 2005 Ashes series. During the test Ricky Ponting and Damian Martin began to form a partnership which had the making of a match saver. Hitting run after run with ease. Only until Martin hits a weak single and calls Ponting to run, the shot is sharply picked up by Gary Pratt and Ponting is sent packing. Cheerio, Ricky.
