    Certainly helps by having so many fine players in his squads for both forms of the game.

    Nice banners you make.

    Still a far, far better batsman than skipper ATM for mine.

    i agree with Richard! his ON side shots look amazing... but i dunno.. with his technique, he does look like a batsman you CAN get out! anyways, i think he's got the best pull shot in world cricket. i also love the way Gilchrist does it!

    Awesome banner mate Well done. Would use it if not for the fact that images can't be had in sigs

    As for Pontings captaincy, well, I still reckon it's underated, but im not getting into a full blown argument over it.

    Stephen Flemming beats him in being a better skipper.. atleast Punter has the vast amount of talent to work with..

    I fail to see the logic in everyones posting on captaincy here...Ponting has a good team so he is automatically either not good or not as good as others

    That kind of thinking is not only naive, but also kinda dumb...(No offence)

    So do India .. look at whats happening..

    Im just saying that Flemming doesnt have the greatest talent to work with.. and thats why everyone notices the key instances to our many victories in the game which was due to his captaincy mainly..

    Nobodies saying that, but the fact his team is so much better than the rest, there's no indication of how good he is.

    Now, if you were to (hypothetically) switch him and Fleming - would he do so well with the Kiwis?

    I perosnally doubt it.

    I reckon he would. I wasn't a big fan of Pontings in the past, but over the years he has won my admiration. Ponting has matured remarkably as a person and as a player, he leads from the front and always supports his players even when the going gets tough.

    New Zealand have a talented side, and a talented bowling side (with Bond fully fit ofcourse), and with his strategies and experience and his general aggression, I'm sure if Ponting was a New Zealander he'd take them up to atleast the Number 3 or even the Number 2 Spot in the World.

    How can you say with any authority that Ponting would not do as well as Fleming with the same squad. If Fleming is a better captain than Ponting you are saying if Fleming was the Aus captain he would lead the team better than Ponting and I personally doubt that.

    Furthermore Ponting has been named captain of the World XI.

    Yes, he's captain of the World XI, but I would like to point out that there is only Lara who's also done that job in the XI, and he's never really looked a good captain.

    If Fleming were in that side, he'd be the skipper.
