Former Australia captain Ricky Ponting has been in the news for a different reason this time. According to a report in 7 news, thieves have targetted him last week. The horrifying incident took place on Friday night when thieves entered into his home and stole his car as well, which was at the parkway. However, a large number of police officials have been looking at the operations to track the car.
Meanwhile, the car was spotted dangerously driven all over the city before it was found in Melbourne’s Camberwell area. Even, two men were also spotted fleeing from there and managed to run away from the police. However, the police are still searching for the suspected people.
On the other hand, Ricky Ponting is known as a cricket expert who shares his views on cricketing tournaments all over the world as well. The former Australia skipper had closely watched the Border-Gavaskar Trophy between India and Australia recently. As India registered a 2-1 series win over the hosts, Ponting admitted that he was being ‘shocked’ with the result as Australia faced a Team India whose many key players were injured.
“I’m quite shocked that Australia weren’t quite good enough to win this series. The cold hard facts of it are pretty much that was the India A team that played this Test match and still won,” Ponting had said.
“It’s probably not even (India’s) second-picked team because you think of Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Ishant Sharma and those guys who didn’t even make it out here. Rohit Sharma turns up for the last two Test matches only,” he further added.
Ricky Ponting, who is associated with the Delhi Capitals in the cash-rich Indian Premier League (IPL), will expect to have a strong team this season as the mini-auction will take place on February 18. As many as 1,097 players have registered for the auction. Among them, 814 are Indian players whereas 743 players are uncapped as well who didn’t feature in the IPL while there are 50 uncapped players too who have been featured in the league before, informed the Indian cricket board in a statement.
