    Ponting v/s Inzamam - Better Batsmen/Captain

    Many Paks believe Inzy is the best batsmen in the world, coz he wins games for Pak and he is also the captain of Pak

    Lets see, Ponting is a very good captain, or is he lucky to have a team like that? Inzy does dual jobs- bat and captain well at the the same time

    Whats ur choice

    With all due respect to Inzy, Ponting is both a better batsman and a better captain. Inzamam is improving as a skipper after a poor start though, and taking his team with him. Ponting isn't a great captain, but he's better than most. In terms of batting there's a fair gap, I think.

    They seem about on equal footing as captains. Ponting is clearly the better batsman though.

    My friend, argument is; is he same/par/better than Inzy

    Inzy, actually, does bat very well in pressure-cooker times with a team like Pakwho can suck one day and make aussies look like cats on another (I am serious; forget; too recent performances)

    OR

    Pak/Inzi stuff is too inflated v/s INDIA only stuff

    I should clarify then... when I say Ponting is better than most, I mean he is better than those going around at the moment except for Fleming and Vaughan, who are above average. Inzy is nothing particularly special as a captain in my opinion, although he is improving.

    Inzamam is an excellent batsman as I said, but Ponting is better.

    You did not state on what grounds you think Ponting is a better batsman.

    Ponting is a very good batsman but the coolness Inzaman displays in pressure situations gives him some thing extra as a player for me.

    Ponting averages 56 compared to Inzis 50 and both have 22 centuries even though Inzi has played more tests.

    In fact Ponting is every bit as good a batsman as Lara and Tendulkar.

    Ponting has bought the Australian team together as a team and focused on cricket whereas Inzi has lots of problems with unity within the team.

    And averages are every thing to prove who is a better batsman I suppose

    Its close between them as captain- Inzy started very poorly but right now he is pretty competent tactically....Ponting, IMO is the worst aussie captain since Hughes.

    When it comes to batting,Ponting is far and away better really.
    Inzy is weak against quality leg spin and weak against accurate fast bowling of the McGrath-Ambrose variety... Ponting is pretty weak against Offspin on an uneven pitch but his weakness is much more restricted than Inzy's.
    But Ponting is not as good as Lara or Tendulkar....i would put him 5th best batsman of the current active batsmen, after Tendy,lara,Dravid and Gilly.
    Gilly and Punter is close but the top three are clearly better.......none of them have any glaring weakness akin to Punter's ineptitude to spinners on an uneven, typical 4th-5th day Indian pitch....and none of them have done as poorly as Punter has in a proper test nation ( India).

    Yes. I am anti-Aussie by saying he is the worst Aussie skipper since Hughes.


    I am sorry, but Border, Taylor and Tugga were all considerably better captains than Punter.
    Both tactically and in ability to marshall their troops...Ponting is a bit too much like the western gunslinger........while the former three were more like chess players.
