Ricky Ponting-Babar Azam: Pakistan will not be able to win the T20 World Cup again, know why Ricky Ponting said this

Former Australian captain Ricky Ponting feels that it will be difficult for Pakistan to win the ICC T20 World Cup this year if skipper Babar Azam does not score runs in the tournament. Pakistan’s Waqar Younis recently said that his former team has a good chance of winning the second T20 World Cup title in Australia, but Ponting is not convinced.

The two-time World Cup winning captain has pointed to star pacers Shaheen Afridi and Mohammad Rizwan as key players. He said that their batting lineup is heavily dependent on the captain and No. 1 batsman Babar.

“If Babar doesn’t score runs in the tournament, I don’t think he can win,” Ponting said in the latest episode of ICC Review. Their openers are very important and their new bowlers are also very important, but the role of spin bowler in Australia can be a bit more difficult with wickets which probably won’t help them.

Notably, it was Ponting’s team Australia, who knocked out Pakistan in the semi-finals in the last season of the T20 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates.
