Ricky Ponting said : "He is wonderful ... talk about great people. He is just an outstanding young man that has got the world at his feet. He will be exceptionally dangerous for India, especially on the wickets we will prepare in Australia (for the T20 World Cup) - good, fast, flat, bouncy wickets. He will be one of the players to watch at the tournament for sure," External link

If I look back through the teams that I’ve been around, when I took over Mumbai Indians, Rohit was very young, Hardik Pandya hadn’t played, Krunal hadn’t played.

That’s certainly one area we need to get better at. Getting through that powerplay none or one down would be a nice start to the run chase,” External link

Ricky Ponting pointed out : “There was a little bit of panic.

We had Pant in the middle of a good innings, Powell had just gone out – if they were able to bat through 2-3 more overs, we would have won the game,” External link

Ricky Ponting said : "He (Babar Azam) has been great in T20I cricket in the past as well, hasn't he? His white-ball cricket has been nothing short of breathtakingly good for the last four-five years. He's the same as Shaheen. I don't get to see a lot of these guys outside of when they tour Australia, but when I saw Babar in the second innings in Brisbane in the first Test against Australia, some of the shots that I saw him play on a fast bouncy Brisbane pitch - both on the front and back foot - against Hazlewood, Starc and Cummins - it was like, I have heard a lot about him and I have seen a fair bit of his while-ball stuff, but this guy is the real deal," External link

Ricky Ponting said : "He's a beautiful player, simple as that. The thing I always look for with these younger type of batters is if they can play well off the back foot in Australia, and particularly through the off-side with a straight bat - which is probably an area that Joe Root hasn't quite got on top of just yet and why he hasn't made those big scores in Australia," "Babar did that and hit on the front foot back down the ground as well. These are just things that I look for as markers and indicators in touring batters when they come to Australia and Babar he ticked both those boxes," External link

He has played as well as anybody in the world through that period of time, and we know how good he is as a white-ball player," "They (BCCI) will have a decision to make what they want to do with their roles as well, whether they split roles or they want to keep the same captain for all formats," External link

If there's a country in the world that's the most difficult to captain, it's probably India because of just how popular the game is and how much every single Indian loves to see the fortunes of the Indian cricket team, whether they are good or bad.
