Melbourne, Dec 20(ANI): Australian pace legend Pace Glenn McGrath has backed batsman Ricky Ponting in the Boxing Day Test against India.I’m expecting big things from Rick.He’s got a big score not far away, I think. have no doubts that our batting line-up will do the business,” The Age quoted McGrath, as saying.
He warned that youngsters would sharpen Australia’ bowling attack.
“I think it’s an exciting time for any young cricketer, especially young bowlers coming through at the moment. You saw what (James) Pattinson’s done, what (Pat) Cummins (has) done. (Mitchell) Starc’s in the mix,” Mc Grath said.
Spinner Nathan Lyon would lead the team’s bowling attack, he said.
“To have a spinner working alongside the quicks coming through is again pretty exciting because he hasn’t played much Test cricket either so hopefully the Indians will be surprised,” McGrath said.(ANI)
