The recent decision by the National Selection Panel to dump Ricky Ponting from the Australian one-day team in the Commonwealth Bank Series indicates that the selectors are beginning to prepare for life after Ponting.

While Ponting did very well in the recent Test series against India, there are signs that his career is starting to wind down.

Another note taken by the selectors’ decision to axe Ponting is that they are starting to cast their gaze towards the 2015 ICC World Cup, with a lot of younger batsmen getting ready to put their name forward in the minds of the selectors.

Also, there is a major question mark hanging over Ponting’s head about whether or not he would tour England in 2013. Ponting has said he wants to tour England again, to make up for the 2005 and 2009 Ashes debacles, and wants to be a part of the team to regain the Ashes on English soil for the first time since 2001.

While Ponting will be part of the Test team to go to the West Indies, there’s a lot of doubt if he will be there for the ODI section of the tour.

So, does Ricky Ponting have one final shot left in the locker, like he did in the second Test against India? Or is it a case of ‘goodbye Ricky ‘Punter’ Ponting, thanks for all you’ve done for Australian cricket?’
