Ricky Ponting has backed India ahead of the #PakvsInd clash i.e. scheduled to take place later in the month during the #AsiaCup2022 and so, here is a look at what the former Australian skipper had to say.
Ricky Ponting Believes India Will Win The #PakvsInd Contest
While speaking during the latest episode of The ICC Review Ponting said, “As a cricket lover like I am and a cricket observer, any time those sorts of battles come up it’s almost always nice to sit back and watch because everything just goes up a notch, doesn’t it? I’ll stick with India to win that clash against Pakistan. That’s taking nothing away from Pakistan because they are an incredible cricket nation that continue to present out-and-out superstar players. It’s 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.”
On the other hand while talking about rivalries in cricket Ponting said, “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.”
