Ricky Ponting gave this special advice to England captain Joe Root Ashes AUS vs ENG 2nd Test


  • Ponting has asked Root to watch the batting of Smith and Labuschagne.
  • Root crossed the 50 mark in the first two Tests but could not score a century.
  • England will expect a big score from him in the second innings of the Adelaide Test.

Former Australia captain Ricky Ponting has given special advice to Joe Root to perform better in the Ashes series. Ponting has asked Root to look into the batting of Australian captain Steve Smith and Marnus Labuschagne so that the player can stay at the crease for a long time like them. Root managed to score 50 in the first two matches of the ongoing series against Australia, but he missed out on a century. At the same time, as soon as he was out, the entire English team also collapsed like a pack of cards.

On the third day of the second Test at the Adelaide Oval on Saturday, Root and David Malan were cementing the team’s position with 62 and 80 runs in the first innings, respectively, but were dismissed by Cameron Green. After this, none of England’s batsmen could survive and soon the team was all out.

During England’s second innings in the opening Test at the Gabba, Root made a comeback into the match, cementing England’s position before being caught by wicketkeeper Alex Carey off Green for 89.

Ponting said that Root was playing well technically, but Root could not play the shot properly on the ball he got out.

On Sunday, an Australia cricket website quoted Ponting as saying, “It is a mental mistake, because there was no technical flaw in the way he got out in the last two times, but it should be seen that the ball he got out.” If you can’t play it properly.

Ponting also pointed out that coming to bat after fielding for almost two days on the field also affected Root.
