Former Australia captain Ricky Ponting has mentioned some cricketers who can be effective for his teams in the T20 World Cup in October.
In the International Cricket Council (ICC) review, the Australian legend was asked who could prove to be the better bowler in the World Cup between Pakistani fast bowler Shaheen Shah Afridi and Indian bowler Jasprit Bumrah.
In response, Ricky Ponting said how can we compare the two best bowlers? Both have been top bowlers in all formats for the past two years.
Ricky Ponting said: “Still I will give importance to experience, I would prefer Bumrah because he has played more cricket in Australia than Shaheen Afridi, Bumrah has played many big tournaments in Australia so he can be more favorable.” .
Ricky Ponting, on the other hand, was asked to choose between two of the world’s most consistent batsmen, England’s Jos Buttler and Pakistan captain Babar Azam.
The former Australian captain said, ‘Babar Azam is technically a better player than Buttler, if the strike rate of both is seen, there is no comparison between them.
“Buttler has played a lot of cricket in Australia along with England and he spent some time in the Big Bash with Sydney Thunders, so I will pick Jos Buttler,” he said.
