Sydney. The name of Australian captain Ricky Potting Punter has also been very popular. According to Potting, he was given this name by legendary spinner Shane Warne. Ponting, while replying to his fans on Twitter, also explained the reason behind the name Punter. Ponting said that I was first given the name Punter by Warne. In 1990, when we were living together in the cricket academy, we were given 40 dollars and I used to go with them to bet on dogs and that's why Warne gave me this name.
