Former Australia captain Ricky Ponting has rated India a "very dangerous side" and said the defending champions have got "too many class players" in their side to retain the title in the ongoing cricket World Cup.
Former Australia captain Ian Chappell feels that Twenty20 cricket has made the game more batsmen-centric and more needs to be done to maintain a balance between the bat and the ball. According to him, if this continues it could lead to the demise of the sport.
Ricky Ponting knew his time was up when he bowed out of international cricket a year ago, but the competitive fires still rage for the former Australia captain when he imagines facing England one more time on home soil.
Veteran Ricky Ponting has said he is delighted to have had a good pre-season training session in almost 20 years of his playing days before any important Test series, and believes it’s an ideal situation for him before he faces South Africa in a Test series in November.
