Ponting looking to Tendulkar for inspiration

Ponting looking to Tendulkar for inspiration

Ricky Ponting is still defying calls for him to retire as Australia captain, saying on his return from a World Cup quarterfinal exit that he's thinking more of a "Tendulkar-sort rebirth."
Demands for Ponting's resignation were louder before his gritty hundred in the quarterfinal loss to Tendulkar's Indian squad, which still ensured Australia's worst World Cup run in two decades but salvaged his own career.
Now the 36-year-old Ponting says he's hopeful of a late-career revival.
He says, "I guess with even making some runs in this last game that I've played and getting that really good feeling back about my batting again, hopefully it might be a bit of a kickstart for a Tendulkar-sort rebirth, if you like."
