Ahead of the Ashes, Iíd like to open a discussion on the relative merits of the two opposing Captains. Australian teams enjoy nothing more than letting it be known that they want to target the captain of the opposition. I wrote two articles for the website of magazine publication, All Out Cricket, using Hawkeye to analyse the batting of both Andrew Strauss and Ricky Ponting.
Here is Pontingís that went up yesterday:

... and here is the one for Strauss from earlier in the week:

What are your thoughts on the points raised and who, and why, do you think will win the battle of the captains?
