Former Australian batting legend Ricky Ponting is expecting his third child with wife Rianna, and it will be a son. The couple already have two daughters – Emmy Charlotte Ponting and Matisse Ellie Ponting, aged five and two respectively.

‘We’ve got two little girls at the moment, so it’s good to know we’ve got a little boy coming along,’, Ponting was quoted as saying by the Sunday Herald Sun.

‘I’ll be able to spend some time in the backyard honing his cricket skills in.’, he added.

Ponting had a long and glorious career for Australia, and led one of the most skilled and intimidating teams the world of cricket has ever seen.
