Tackling spin still tricky for Australian batsmen: Ponting

Nagpur, Feb.23 (ANI): Australian captain Ricky Ponting is happy with the way his pace attack is shaping up, but admits his batsmen need to keep working on their shot selection against spin.

The defending champions opened their World Cup campaign with a 91-run win over Zimbabwe on Monday, scoring a relatively modest total of 6-262 against the world No.11-ranked side then bowling them out for 171.

“We’ve had a good solid performance and we know we’ll have to improve and play better against New Zealand,” the Age quoted Ponting, as saying.

“We need to have our games and our own game plans sorted out for better spin attacks,” he added. (ANI)
