Legendary Australian cricketer Ricky Ponting posted a picture with his former teammates Bret Lee, Adam Gilchrist, Matthew Haden, and others on Sunday (August 14). Ponting, the head coach at the Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Delhi Capitals, received comments from Capitals’ batters, Rishabh Pant and David Warner. Warner commented, “Miss you Ricky” and Pant said, “All the Bosses are together.”

The World Cup-winning captain is not part of the next month’s fixture between India Maharajas and World Giants on the 16th of September. But his former teammates Bret Lee, Shane Watson, and Mitchell Johnson are confirmed to play this special fixture before the start of the Legends League Cricket 2022.

Ricky Ponting predicts the winner of India against Pakistan in the 2022 Asia Cup:

Meanwhile, India and Pakistan set to continue their historic rivalry on August 28 when both these giants clash in the 2022 Asia Cup in UAE. Pakistan lead the overall head-to-head stats against India in international cricket and also ended their World Cup losing curse in the 2021 T20 World Cup with a big 10-wicket win. The Indian side will be eager for quick revenge against their neighbors but will find it tough to dominate Pakistan with the key pacer Jasprit Bumrah missing the tournament with an injury. But Ponting feels that it will be hard to get past India for any team due to their depth in every position.

“I will stick with India to win that clash against Pakistan. That is taking nothing away from Pakistan because they are an incredible cricket nation that continues to present out-and-out superstar players. It is always hard to go past India in any tournament, not just an Asia Cup, but I think every time we talk about the T20 World Cup which is coming up, I think that India will be right in the thick of it there. Their depth is definitely better than the other teams and I think India will win the Asia Cup,” Ricky Ponting said in the ICC Review episode on Saturday.

“When I think about rivalries, Australia and England and Ashes cricket is the pinnacle I’ve always thought of for our Test match game. I’m sure India and Pakistanis will say the same about that and the actual rivalry would be the pinnacle of Test match cricket for those two countries as well,” Ponting added.
