Ponting told FoxSports that India and Pakistan are great teams in the current scenario of world cricket. He said, “They had a really good team going into that World Cup.

While choosing India as the opponent in the finals, Ricky Ponting said, “I think India are the standout T20 team in the world because of the depth of talent that they’ve got and how many guys that they can just keep bringing in and out of that side and they keep winning.

“They’ll play these conditions well. We’ve seen in the last couple of years that they’ve played, even now they’re playing Australian conditions well, so I’ve got Australia and India in the final.”
