I’ll tell Rohit Sharma and Pat Cummins to play some good tough aggressive cricket – Ricky Ponting

Indian Cricket Team would back each other to top the mighty Australians in the 2021-23 WTC final scheduled for June 7 at the Oval. A billion people would be waiting for boss Rohit Sharma to get fit. Rohit Sharma broke down all sorts of issues in the recently concluded IPL 2023.

India would bet on the lethal sprinters Mohammed Shami and Mohammed Siraj. It seems unlikely that the team will miss Jasprit Bumrah as the team has the services of Shardul Thakur and Umesh Yadav who can fool the batsman with variations on him.

India’s management has a huge conundrum as playing both Ashwin and Jadeja can be risky. It looks like Ravindra Jadeja would beat Ashwin, as Jadeja can also hit in the middle order and can negate the threat from spinners and pacers.

We don’t want a tied game- Ricky Ponting

Ricky Ponting was having an interaction with Star Sports. Ricky Ponting wanted both sides to play a fearless style of cricket and he gave advice that captains Rohit Sharma and Pat Cummins should push for a result rather than a draw.

“The cricket world deserves to see an unbelievably good Test match with a result. We don’t want a tied game. So I will tell both captains to go out there and play a tough, aggressive test cricket match and make sure there is a result at the end.” Ricky Ponting said.

“Even if it means risking yourself and the team losing a game to win it, then do it.” added.

“The really refreshing way I’ve seen Test cricket played in recent years is how England plays, the win-at-all-costs approach. They have played test cricket the best way it should be played. I think both captains in the final should show that Test cricket can be played aggressively.”
