Ricky Ponting is one of the most popular cricketers and one of the best captains in the world. He is no stranger to fans approaching him for selfies and photos as he has a fan base across the cricketing nations. However, when one fan in Australia asked the former skipper for a photo, it wasn’t with the cricketer.

The incident took place ahead of the second Test between Aus and Pak

After Ponting agreed, the fan surprisingly handed his phone to Ponting and asked the former cricketer to take a picture of him with well-known Australian sports presenter Melanie McLaughlin. The incident took place ahead of the second Test between Australia and Pakistan in Adelaide. The former captain recently joined McLaughlin and other cricketers in the Channel Seven commentary team for the ongoing Australia-Pakistan Test series. The official account of the channel posted the pictures of Ponting taking the photo of McLaughlin with the fan.

Reacting to the post, McLaughlin wrote, “This version of events is.. mostly.. accurate..”
