    A cricket video for Cricket World TV about the latest cricket news from Find us on Facebook: and Twitter: as we look back on the third and final Test between Australia and South Africa in Perth.

    South Africa won the game comprehensively, overcoming a slow start and thanks to centuries from Hashim Amla and AB de Villiers, the margin of victory was an impressive 309 runs. The win meant that former Australian captain Ricky Ponting had to bow out from international cricket with defeat.

    Ricky Ponting retirement talk had heightened recently due to his loss of form in the Test arena - he had already retired from ODI and T20I cricket and resigned the Test captaincy last year.

    In full flow, there is little doubt that Ponting batting was one of the best players his country has ever produced, and he took some of the best catches you might wish to see during his 17-year Test career.

    He finished with 168 Test caps, over 13,000 runs and a record that means he will certainly be missed and both opponents and team-mates have already been quick to congratulate Ponting on his wonderful career.

    Although plenty of people will remember accusations of Ponting cheating and indeed him being run out on a few occasions, there have been few better cricketers of his generation. What are your favourite Ponting memories?

    With this win, South Africa have retained their number one position in the Test rankings and with Pakistan and New Zealand up next for them, have to be favourities to stay there for some time.

    This tour allowed players such as Francois du Plessis, Robin Peterson to make a good impression and South Africa had to battle with injury problems - JP Duminy, Jacques Kallis and Vernon Philander all struggling before the end of the series.
