Where is Gary Joseph Pratt??

Posted by seshdotcom on July 19, 2009

Many of them may not remember Gary Joseph Pratt–The hero of the iconic “Ponting Run Out” which paved the way for the English Victory in the 4th test of the Ashes 2005.Coming to Gary he plays cricket for cumbris currently and he is a good Off-Break Bowler who can turn the ball and a very good batsman who has a century feather in his cap in the First Class/County Matches.He scored 1,055 runs in a calendar year in the first class games his top score was 150 in a match against Northhamtonshire but that was way back in 2003 after that Gary did not have a very good form to impress the selectors but however he is playing a Good game so I hope I can see him back soon

Ponting’s Run Out:

This is the important thing that made Gary very famous.It was during the 4th ashes test match when Australia were on control and Poting was looking for a big score but it was too late for ponting to reach home when the Ligtning Tracer Bullet throw by Gary from short cover disturbed the timber and this made Australia lose a very strong position and resulted in their defeat.This made ponting shout at the English dressing room when he was walking towards the Pavillion seeing Duncan Fletcher and other English Players for making a twelfth man enter the field—Actually the twelfth man came to the field due to a genuine injury to “Simon Jones”

Where is Gary Now????:

See the “Irony of fate” Gary is now working in a container company transporting heavy things like cars etc., and he is the driver of that lorry but I believe he hasn’t lost his cricket touch till now because he plays some cricket for cumbria even now and it should be ok for him to start and play his natural game when he makes a comeback to the English cricket team.Will Gary be back!!!??Only time has to answer this question

Mr.Ponting to me twelfth man when he enters a field he is also a player so please do not give lame excuses for your “Run Out”
