Ricky Gets Kissed

A few embarrassing moments

For a cause: Australian cricketer Ricky Ponting giving his bat to Jayaram Reddy, highest bidder, at an auction in Bangalore on Thursday. Actor Mandira Bedi is seen.

Excerpts from Hindu.


At an auction, “Take Home Ricky Ponting”, organised by ING Vysya Bank on Thursday, a black and white canvas photograph of the Australian captain was up for grabs with a base price of Rs. 10,000. When a man, who called himself Jayaram Reddy, raised his hand, Mandira Bedi, the auctioneer, was flummoxed when he said that he did not want the photo, but simply wanted to have his photo clicked with Mr. Ponting for which he was even willing to pay Rs.10,000.

But it turned out to be a bouncer. Even this most astute of cricketers was unable to predict. Mr. Ponting, who obliged willingly for the photo, was left red-faced when he found himself being hugged and even forcibly given a peck on the cheek.

Next on the menu was a cricket bat autographed by Mr. Ponting. A few embarrassing silent moments later, the audience began to respond. The bat was sold to none other than Mr. Reddy.

The scene on the dais turned quite hilarious as Ms. Bedi tried to shield Mr. Ponting from any more unwelcome advances as Mr. Reddy came up on the stage. Much to everyone’s relief, Mr. Reddy restrained himself to a vigorous handshake.
