Ricky Ponting breaks down in tears as he pays tribute to Shane Warne


                       Former Australia captain Ricky Ponting broke down in tears while paying an emotional tribute to his former teammate and friend Shane Warne. Warne passed away on Friday (March 04) aged 52 after suffering a heart attack in Thailand. The news of his tragic demise sent shockwaves across the cricketing fraternity with several former and current cricketers expressing their condolences.

                      Ponting was in tears as he remembered the legendary spinner and said he was as shocked at the news of Warne's demise as the rest of the world. The former Aussie skipper said the shocking news didn't seem real to him at the time it emerged and it has been hard for him to process it.

                    “I was shocked I think like probably the rest of the world. I mean I’ve got the messages when I woke up this morning. I went to bed last night knowing that I had to take my daughters for netball and then was confronted with what didn’t seem quite real at that time and even now probably doesn’t really seem like it’s real either so I’ve had a few hours now to digest it all and think about how a part of my life he was and reflect on a lot of those memories through the years," Ponting said in a video after breaking down in tears.
