Nope, I haven't liked Ponting since he first came on the scene. I think he is a good batsmen, but I knew when he got in that fist-fight in Tassie years ago he'll never be a great captain (meaning great as in Alan Border, Mark Taylor and Steve Waugh). I'm not saying "oh look at him, he gets drunk and had a punch on year ago, he can't be captain", I'm just saying that I just thought then that he probebly won't have the characteristics to make him a great cpatain, and that wasn't based on what he actually did, it just clicked in my head. He can do the job, but I don't think he is the right guy to do it, but I can't name any alternatives at this stage as I said before, I can't think of anyone who could be a great captain in the team at the momment.Originally Posted by aussie
But as I said, regardless on my bias, he won't and shouldn't be sacked unless he manages to loose or draw (I should say, it has to be a bad draw too, like a narrow escape) a series at home this summer.
