Ricky Ponting: Babar Azam ‘crucial’ to Pakistan’s T20 World Cup success
Ricky Ponting, an Australian who has won the ODI World Cup twice, thinks that Babar Azam, who will lead Pakistan in the T20 World Cup in 2022, will be very important to the team’s success.
Ponting told the ICC Review, “If Babar did well, Pakistan would win the mega event.”
Ponting says that if Babar had a bad tournament, it would be impossible for the team to win. In Australia, the openers and first-ball bowlers are very important. However, the former captain said that the spinner may have a harder time because the wickets may not help them. Ponting said that Australia and India would win the T20 World Cup because they were the last two winners.
“I think India and Australia will play in the final,” Ponting said, and he’ll have to say that Australia will beat India in the final.
“I saw him up close and personal a couple of years ago out here in a Test series against Australia and I said it then, I thought the sky was the limit for this guy as far as Test match batting (was concerned) and, if anything, he’s probably got better and better in the last couple of years.
