Ponting not ruled out for Ashes
Australian coach Mickey Arthur said yesterday that former captain Ricky Ponting was very much in the reckoning to play in next year's Ashes series in England.
Arthur felt there won’t be any major changes to his side before November’s first Test against South Africa in Brisbane. “There was a lot of media pressure around Ricky, but Ricky is not going anywhere,” Arthur told the Daily Telegraph.
“Ricky is in no way considering retirement. I wouldn’t have thought from my conversations with him,” Arthur said.
