Rickey Ponting slams England, says ‘haven’t seen a worse-performing team in Australia’

Previous captain Ricky Ponting has said something regarding England’s sad Ashes crusade, saying it’s presumably the most exceedingly terrible looking English side to have visited Australia for the renowned series. With Australia easily winning the first three Tests to take an unassailable 3-0 lead in the five-match series, England’s fantasies about winning back the Ashes have disintegrated, and on the off chance that things are to improve, Ponting proposes the opposing group returns to the planning phase assuming they are to add a similarity to regard to the score line.

“I don’t think I’ve seen a more awful performing group in Australia than what I’ve seen in the course of the last three games. We’ve experienced this in Australia. You wind the clock back a couple of years prior when we had our battles in England, we changed conditions, we changed the ball, we changed everything in light of the fact that we were poor in those conditions,” Ponting told cricket.com.au.

“Britain may have to examine how they can make their conditions more reasonable to our own. They play well in England still yet they don’t play well when they come here – so perhaps they play more with the Kookaburra ball. Possibly they level the wickets out a smidgen so there’s not as much swing and crease, so the hitters are making greater scores and batting for longer timeframes. It very well may be precisely the same blip that (Australia) needed to have three or four years prior.”

Britain have endured whitewashes before in Australia, eminently the 2013 series however this time around, seeing the batting surrender is amazing failure, feels Ponting. Excepting Joe Root and Dawid Malan, the remainder of the English players was cut a sorry figure, and there has been literally nothing from any semblance of Zak Crawley, Haseeb Hameed, Ollie Pope and even Ben Stokes.

“A portion of the English top-request hitters that I’ve found in the last two or three visits, without giving names, there’s certain procedures there that I simply know won’t stand up at Test level. In testing conditions and elite bowlers facing unacceptable procedures, then, at that point, you get what happened today (at the MCG),” added Ponting.

“The little swing dibbly-dobblers that are getting them out around there (in province cricket), they’re not confronting that at Test level. They’re confronting folks who can really bowl. What I’ve seen with their batting, they’re just not sufficient.”
