Summary

From facing the old foe, England, to a World Cup campaign, Australia's cricket captain charts his year ... In 2006-07, Ricky Ponting's Australian team achieved the first Ashes clean sweep in 86 years, an experience Ponting described as 'the best of my cricketing life'. It featured stunning performances from men such as Shane Warne, Adam Gilchrist and Andrew Symonds, while the captain himself drew comparisons with Bradman following his hundreds in the opening two tests. Yet, immediately afterwards, the Australians produced an even more commanding performance at the World Cup in the Caribbean. Not even the bizarre ending to the final against Sri Lanka, in near darkness after officials misinterpreted the playing conditions, could hide the fact that this victory was one of the most dominant in Australian sporting history. It was a season of triumph, but also the last for some of Ponting's great teammates - Warne, Glenn McGrath, Justin Langer and Damien Martyn - and coach John Buchanan, who all announced their retirements. In Captain's Diary 2007, Ponting pays tribute to these men, and in doing so reveals why they, and the team he is privileged to captain, are so special.
