Ponting Up For Captain’s Knock

Live on Skysports 1: Wed 08.30: Ricky Ponting must use Canada to search for form ahead of Australia’s knockout phase games.

Ricky Ponting’s Australia are just 1/66 (Skybet) extend their World Cup unbeaten run to 34 games and Canada, 20/1 with bet365, aren’t likely to end that run.

Ponting has stated that he won’t experiment as he looks to keep up momentum ahead of the knockout phase while Canada could send in John Davison to open in his last game while wicketkeeper and captain Ashish Bagai will also bow out after this contest.

The Aussie fans will have been disappointed at their bowling display against Kenya and whilst the associate side were always unlikely to make the required 325, a 264-6 from all 50 overs was a valiant effort.

Brett Lee and Shaun Tait seemed to be the only people who knew what to do with the ball that day, grabbing one and two wickets respectively. Lee is 5/2 fav (bet365) to grab the most against Canada while Tait is 3/1 (888sport).

Ricky Ponting was looking a bit more settled than usual against Kenya but an lbw stopped him reaching a half century again, surely he is due a big knock. Captain Ponting is out at 9/2 (Stan James) to top score which looks a little big.

While Australia should walk this, Canada can take heart that their score has increased with every game. The problem is they won’t stop Australian runs from flowing but Balaji Rao, a fine spinner, will do his best and is a good shout for top Canadian wicket taker at 72 (Blue Square).
