Mr ABBOTT (WarringahLeader of the Opposition) (15:18): On indulgence, Madam Speaker, I rise to join the Prime Minister in congratulating Ricky Ponting on a superb innings as an Australian cricketer, as an Australian cricket captain, as someone who has given tremendous pleasure to cricket lovers around the world and tremendous pride to Australians who have followed the team's success under his leadership. He is undoubtedly one of the all-time greats of one of the very great games. I might invite, if I may, Madam Speaker, Ricky's local member, Mr Morrison, to say a few words.

Mr Lyons: I thought he came from Bass!
