    Yeah, as I mentioned in an earlier thread, he looked none too pleased given he wasn't wearing much, if any, protective gear, hadn't touched a bat in three months by his own admission, and then they were trying to take his head off!

    And Brown was a very promising cricketer in his younger days opened the bowling in first grade at about 17 I believe.
    But still, even wearing a suit and not having batted in 3 months, amazing how ordinary the best batsman in the world can look against a bunch of jokers.

    Not making excuses for Ponting, but Brayshaw said something later about how he'd also found it very difficult to pick up the ball out of the hand against the dark background with the lighting they had set up, so Punter was probably on a hiding to nothing...

    For Ponting's sake, I hope not!

    Why not? They'd been hard at it for the best part of a year by the end of the World Cup, and they're playing something like (off the top of my head) 18 Tests, plus a swag of ODIs and a er um, very worthwhile, 20Twenty World Cup in 12 months from September. He might as well take a good break before resuming training a month or two out from the 20Twenty thingy.

    The big challenge for the Aussie team over the next period will be keeping their best team consistently on the park...

    I don't expect him to be in full-on training but you can't be a professional cricketer and go 3 full months without once picking-up a bat IMO. Totally laissez-faire.

    I guess its a personal thing in the end, and I reckon Ponting knows what he needs to do to have himself right. If he felt he needed the break, then its good he's had it. He might be rusty for a little while, but the mental rejuvenation is probably at least as important in his case...

    Jono Brown was a gun cricketer when he was younger actually, so no surprise that given Ponting had no equipment on, and Brown was literally bowling it out of a huge set of lights, that he troubled Ricky.

    Hmm, he might think he knows what's best and he might (as we almost all do) think "ah, got aaaaaaaaaages off, don't need to worry too much yet..." and that "yet" drags on.

    It's fine to have 3 weeks or so off from batting, but after that, IMO you should make sure you grab your bat and a bowling-machine and have one or two hits a week without fail.

    And it's even more important for a bowler to keep bowling.

    I assume you know what Ponting is required to do training wise from your extensive Domestic & International career?

    I have heard what people like Errol Hunte say about the matter, y'know.

    Everyone is different in what they need to get ready. If Ponting thought he needed a break, he is experienced enough to know what he needs to do to get ready. If he starts playing in the next match and looks rusty, then we can have a go at him.

    He is far and away the best batsman in the world, I think he knows enough to realize what he needs to do. Mental rejuvination in international cricket is at least as important as being physically there. And being in the fantastic physical shape Ponting is in, I wouldn't really worry about it if I was Australian.

    Brown's the big fella who bowled first up? Definitely looks to have something about him. Height & a bit of pace too. Probably one of those hateful gets who're brilliant at anything they turn their hand to.

    Who's Punter's AFL team, btw?
