Melbourne, Jan.21 (ANI): Australian cricket captain Ricky Ponting has praised the nation’’s next generation of players ahead of Friday’’s one-day clash with South Africa at the SCG.
Following the 2-1 Test series defeat to the Proteas, the national side has won the two-match Twenty20 series 2-0 and the five-match one-day series is locked at 1-1 heading into the Sydney match.
“The cricket we have played in the first two one-dayers has been pretty good as well,” he said at a 3 Mobile promotional function on Wednesday.
“So I think we have actually done a remarkable job if you look at all the blokes that are out and you are playing against South Africa who are a pretty good one-day side and for us to do what we have done shows a lot about the next generation of players,” the Daily Telegraph quoted him, as saying further.
