Ricky Ponting is all set to be inducted into the Australian Cricket Hall of Fame. The formal induction will be at the 2018 Allan Border Medal ceremony, scheduled for February 12 in Melbourne.

Former women's team captain Karen Rolton and  Norm O'Neill, the batsman who played 42 Test matches between 1958 and 1965, will also be inducted into the Australian Cricket Hall of Fame.

Ponting, the most capped Australian Test and one day international cricketer, is also the leading run-scorer for his country in Tests and ODIs. He amassed 13,378 runs in 168 Tests at an outstanding 51.85 with 41 centuries, while in ODIs, he scored 13,704 runs in 375 outings at 42.03 with 30 centuries.

He also captained Australia a record 324 times during his 17-year-long international career across formats, and led them to back-to-back ICC Cricket World Cup titles in 2003 and 2007. Ponting is also the only player in the world to have taken part in more than 100 Test victories. He played his final Test against South Africa at the WACA ground in Perth in 2012.
