A video showing Ricky Ponting being dismissed by South Africa's Robin Peterson during the second innings of the third Test in Perth.

It was the last time Ponting had entered the cricket field after an illustrious 17-year career. The 37-year-old boasts of a record 168 Test appearances and more than 100 wins as captain. He has scored 41 centuries in this time, a record which is second only to India's Sachin Tendulkar.

Ponting got a thunderous ovation from the crowd on his departure for the last time. Earlier, when he walked in to bat, he also got a guard of honour from the South Africa team apart from a standing ovation from the crowd.
