Former Australia captain Ricky Ponting was formally inducted into the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame on Wednesday. 

To mark the occasion, Ponting received his commemorative cap from compatriot ICC Cricket Hall of Famer, Glenn McGrath,  during the tea break on the opening day of the third Test against India at the MCG.

 Ponting was named in the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame along with former India captain Rahul Dravid and England woman wicketkeeper-batter Claire Taylor during the ICC Annual Conference in Dublin in July. Ponting could not attend the ICC conference.

Ponting is a three-time ICC Cricket World Cup winner including two times as captain. He is the 25th Australia cricketer to be formally inducted into the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame. 

The 44-year-old Ponting retired from international cricket in 2012 after scoring 13,378 runs in 168 Tests. He scored 41 centuries, 13,704 runs in 375 ODIs with 30 centuries and 401 runs in 17 T20s with two half-centuries.

Ponting was named the ICC Player of the Year in 2006 and 2007 while also being named the ICC Test Player of the Year in 2006.
