Sydney: Expressing concern over the size and weight of bats used in Test cricket, former Australia skipper Ricky Ponting yesterday said he will take up the matter at the next meeting of the Marylebone Cricket Club's world cricket committee at Lord's early next week.
The World Cup-winning skipper called for regulation of size to ensure a greater balance between bat and ball as the current laws only limit the length and width of bats, not the depth or weight.
Ponting said he had no problem with such bats being used in the shorter formats but believed they should be banned from Test cricket.
