Former captain Ricky Ponting, who was appointed Australia's assistant coach for the ICC Cricket World Cup, believes that despite the poor performance in recent times, the team is capable of saving the title. According to the ICC website report, one-day team is struggling with the absence of current champion Australia Steve Smith and David Warner, who are ranked sixth in the team rankings. His struggle is to worry about the World Cup in England, where the team has to save their title.
Australia won the title in the 2015 World Cup. Ponting played the World Cup for the first time in 1996. He has batted in the World Cup five times, out of which he has been a part of the team that won the title. He has twice been the champion in the captaincy (2003 and 2007).
When Pouting was asked whether the team would be able to save their title in the World Cup, they said, "Definitely, our team will be successful in doing this." England's conditions are favorable and we will benefit from playing there. "
He said, "India and England are also two main contenders. But if you add Warner and Smith back into the team, then I think the team will get very strong and it will save the title. "
Smith and Warner have been banned for one year in a ball tempering case and this ban ends on March 29 next month. Ponting said, "I am not saying that because I am coach. I also said that when I was not a coach. The conditions in England are favorable to our players. Smith and Warner have a lot of experience. They can easily reduce the pressure. "
