Aussie legend, Ricky Ponting expects the form of big three Aussie pacers, Mitchell Stark, Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood in ICC World Cup-19 and Ashes
Mustafiz is in rest
Accordingly, All three bowlers have had reduced workloads heading into the World Cup. Hazlewood has not played since the home series against India and Starc last played in the Tests against Sri Lanka that followed – both have since been recovering from injuries. And while Cummins involved in the limited-overs series in India and the United Arab Emirates, he played in just one of the five ODIs against Pakistan.
Ricky Ponting on the eve of World Cup-19, “They [Starc, Hazlewood, and Cummins] have all had reasonable lay-offs now. I know some of them got through the summer and injuries with Josh and Stacy of late, but that should mean they go into a World Cup very fresh.”
“None of those guys will be in the IPL either, so they need to just manage [themselves] really well, with the thought of playing every game through the World Cup and the Ashes. I’m sure all those bowlers want to do that. It’s up to them to get themselves fit enough and strong enough to give themselves the best chance of being able to get through.”
“There might be a wicket that might look like it will be slower and turn more, so you go in with another all-around option and/or another spinner. But management is going to be key because trying to prioritize a World Cup over an Ashes series … it’s impossible. You’ve just got to face what you’ve got in front of you.” And conclude with, “The whole goal for Australian cricket right now should be to win the World Cup and worry about whatever happens after that, after that.”Try our mobile application and stay saw us
