Australian Test Captain, cricketing God and all round Australian hero, Ricky Ponting, has heard about our exploits and wanted to wish us luck in Mumbai:

“Good luck guys for your run through the streets of Mumbai.  It’s one of my favourite cities in the world and I’m sure you will do Australia proud”.

Thanks Ricky! The fact that you even know we’re out here makes me proud as punch and feeling pretty damn special about next week’s race.

Good luck in the 3rd Test against Pakistan, that last one was close but as always our boys held their nerve under your outstanding leadership! I’ll be running during the next test, so I’ll be thinking of the team and trying to draw on that same kind of courage and never say die attitude!
