Gilchrist tips Ponting to be as sharp a commentator as captain

Sydney: Ricky Ponting and Adam Gilchrist are the marquee signings of an otherwise largely familiar commentary team, which will take the Twenty20 Big Bash League free to air for the first time on Network 10 on Friday night, according to reports.

According to, while Gilchrist has been a guest commentator for Nine in the past, Ponting has had little experience from the other side of the fence.

Gilchrist said that he expects the viewers to find Ponting`s commentary and his whole presence in the broadcast really enjoyable.

He added that Ponting`s insight into the game is as good as any and his tactical mind as a captain will transfer into the commentary box, with the analysis of situations being as sharp as anyone.
