The panic of a pandemic. The boredom of staying inside. The monotony of isolation.
We are going through a lot, and the last thing we want, is to re-live the traumas of the past.
Who'll tell that to Ricky Ponting, though.
The guy who won Australia the final of 2003 World Cup with his century, shared the picture of the bat he used that day, and it was a totally uneccesary flex honestly.
Given we've all got a bit of time on our hands as we stay at home, thought I'd go through what I've kept from my career and share some of it with everyone on a regular basis - this is the bat I used in the 2003 World Cup final. pic.twitter.com/meoBP6NJvg— Ricky Ponting AO (@RickyPonting) March 23, 2020
On this date in 2003, Australia crashed India's hopes of winning the World Cup, after our side miraculously made it to the final.
We all know it would have hurt less if we had not.
Quater-final exit? Okay expected. Semi-final? Well done.
Final. FINAL. Now they must win.
They couldn't, making it the first true heartbreak for millions of Indians.
17 years on, we act like we got it together, but no one has really recovered.
And these reminders certainly don't help, Mr. Ponting.
