Australia vs South Africa Live: Ricky Ponting Delivers Nonsense Verdict On David Warner’s Future In International Cricket. Ricky Ponting, a former captain of the Australia National Cricket Team, has advised veteran opening batsman David Warner to be pragmatic when deciding on his Test career.
For a considerable amount of time, 36-year-old David Warner has not appeared at his best in Test cricket. Warner was dismissed for a golden duck in the opening Test of the three-match series against South Africa by Kagiso Rabada.
Meanwhile, Australian legend Ponting opined that Warner should be allowed to conclude his career how he sees fit rather than being fired.
“I think what he should be doing is being as realistic and looking to the future as he can,” Ponting said on Channel 7.

“Like I said before, he deserves the chance to finish the way he wants to finish. I would hate to see him get to an Indian tour or at the start of the Ashes tour and then get the tap on the shoulder. That would be a disappointing way for his career to end…it might be after the Sydney Test. Let’s wait and see. Also, I hope that he gets some runs between now and then.”

“We all know the X-Factor of cricketer that David Warner is and the type of batter he is,” Lyon said.
“He’s got 100% support of the changing room and [that] should be the whole Australian public, to be honest with you. Yes, he got a good steep bouncer today but that was a hell of a catch to hang onto. I’m expecting David to come out and do amazing things.”
While everything was going on, South Africa was dismissed for 152 in the first innings of the Gabba Test, with three wickets each going to Nathan Lyon, Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins, and Scott Boland.
“When we got bowled out for 150-odd, as much as you want to try and get the energy up it can be quite difficult,” Kyle Verreynne said.
“So to get the wicket the first ball of the innings, and when it’s a big player like David Warner, that just lifts everyone up and for the next 10 overs, we carried that energy and adrenalin from that ball. Unfortunately, we fell away a bit but it was definitely a massive moment.”
