Almost every day, the CA site (cricket.com.au) quotes Ricky Ponting, and usually in their man headline. This, in itself, is not a problem but he's the ASSISTANT coach. Where are the Langer quotes ?

Sure, Punter was one of the greats but let's see more from JL and the Oz skipper.

Today, RP is calling for Cam Green to be called into the Aussie squad for the Tests against New Zealand.

CA could've quoted Nick's Sports Bar, from last Friday, BEFORE Green scored his latest century:

Well, it’s good to see that Ricky takes his scoops from intelligent sources, Donny.

They should ask Ricky more about the Ponting Criterion. (Has Green played BBL?)

Today's headline:

Ponting issues Wagner warning to Australia.

Is he on their payroll ?

Does he not think we can read ?

cricket.com.au's payroll? Probably. It's common, but usually if it's a newspaper a ghostwriter dresses the phone chat up into an article.

He gets the main headline again. And one other feature.

Nothing from the coach or skipper.

However, I did find this interesting: "Australia bat first against Black Caps in Perth" Smile

We need an article on Ponting's first net with his son Fletcher. (I didn't know he had a son named Fletcher.)

And another article on the Ponting Criterion and all the T20 batsmen who fail it.

Langer on Marnus (on radio, but don't know if cricket.com.au quoted it too):

"He's got a nice technique, he actually moves his feet, got footwork patterns. It's a dying art in the game of cricket with the amount of T20 and one-day cricket guys play now."


Hehehe...

No point pursuing DRS perfection: Ponting

Former Australia skipper labels day three incident a 'mistake' but insists the system will never be foolproof

'Sometimes, Ponting points out, that technology surprises the human eye – like when Paine felt certain he'd been struck outside the line of off stump by the Neil Wagner delivery from around the wicket that dismissed him.

"As far as the ball tracking is concerned, the players have just got to understand that what they sometimes think and feel about what we've learnt about the game over the years (might be wrong)," said Ponting.

"You heard Tim Paine talking this morning about the angle (Wagner) created, he felt he would have had to be outside the line.

"I think it was actually showing that he wasn't outside the line. You just feel as a player (sometimes), 'it must have hit me outside the line'.

"With Ross Taylor's one, Painey felt like that had to be out. If you look at it, it struck him clearly above the knee roll and everything we've always learnt and been told about umpiring is that if you get hit above the knee roll … it's going to go over the stumps."'



[I agree with Ponting there. The players often don't have a clue, but they complain about the ball tracking as if they have perfect judgement. The only way to know how good ball tracking is is to test it properly.]
