Rickey Pointing is arguably Australia’s best players ever. He was a superstar quite early in his cricketing career. In the 2000/01 season, however, he went through a bad patch of form that stopped his rise to the top. After making 92 against West Indies at Adelaide, the right-hand batter could not produce a good knock in the next months. He managed just one fifty in the next 10 innings.

Worse came later in the 2001 India tour when Ponting could only manage a best of 11 in five innings, of which three were ducks. It was in the Ashes of 2001 that the batter regained his touch and made 144 ending a poor run of form that extended one year.

His ODI form was also bad having made 510 runs in 14 matches with just one century in the whole year.
