A video shared by the official Twitter account of the Lord’s cricket ground, wherein former Australia captain Ricky Ponting recalls his infamous dismissal during the Trent Bridge Test in the Ashes 2005. Ponting was run out at a critical moment in Australia’s second innings in the fourth Ashes 2005 Test, by the substitute fielder Gary Pratt, which made him loose cool. Ponting was so frustrated at that dismissal, and as he climbed the stairs back to the pavilion, he gave a mouthful to the then England coach Duncan Fletcher, whose move had somewhat managed him to get under Ponting’s skin.

On that day, Pratt was fielding for an injured Simon Jones. Ponting was already critical of England’s use of substitute fielders but this was a valid case. Pratt, who collected the ball after Damien Martyn had pushed it on the off side for a single, had managed to hit the wickets directly, catching Ponting short of the crease. Pratt was quoted on Andrew Flintoff as saying by the Telegraph, “I sat and had a few beers with him after the Oval Test. He never mentioned the incident, just said ‘well done and good luck’.” ALSO READ: Ashes XI: Heroes of the urn, duds otherwise

England ended their agony that year as the snatched the Ashes urn from Australia, in what turned out to be a historical series for them. England won it 2-1, and this sparked a remarkable change in their fortunes against Australia, especially playing at home.

Pratt, was later recalled on several occasions by England cricketers on their team bus celebrations, also received a pair of boots from Ponting later on. He may have not played for Durham for long, but Pratt has settled down in the county as a businessman.

“I sat and had a few beers with him after the Oval Test. He never mentioned the incident, just said ‘well done and good luck’,” Pratt recalled of Andrew Flintoff. His England team-mates did not forget him after the Ashes too, inviting him on the team bus celebrations afterwards. Even Ponting himself gave him a pair of his boots as a souvenir.
