“Aggressive batting is going to…”Ricky Ponting gives a Shocking statement before Delhi’s next match

Delhi Capitals head coach and former World Cup-winning captain believes that it’s aggressive batting that’s going to help the team win this year’s IPL. In the 31 matches played this season, there have been nine occasions when the team has been able to put 200 or more runs on the scoreboard.

Ahead of Delhi’s next clash against the Gujarat Titans, Delhi’s head coach believes that the team that will be putting more runs on board is going to win the IPL this season.

In his pre-match press conference, Ricky Ponting said, “It looks like that’s where the game is going to go. Sunrisers [Hyderabad, SRH] are obviously responsible for a couple of those big scores. KKR got 260-odd [272 for 7] against us. I think the impact player is having a big effect on the way teams are batting. You watched the way Travis [Head] batted last night. You can’t bat that way unless you’ve got confidence in the players underneath you, and you bat deep in your batting order as well.”

Ponting further added, “Quite often, big tournaments like the IPL and the Big Bash back in Australia have been won by the best defensive bowling teams. But the way this IPL is going—and [with] the different rules in the IPL—it looks like it will be won by the team that’s most willing to take on the bowling and try and post some really big scores. I think it’s potentially more attacking batting that’s going to win this IPL than defensive bowling.”
