Ponting has support in some quarters

You'd think that Ricky Ponting would be sacked or resign if Australia lose The Ashes but if I were him I wouldn't be resigning unless there was a better man for the job. Whether as captain or not, I find it hard to believe that he won't be playing for a couple of years yet. This piece in The Guardian delves into his background and mentions that they thought about getting him to play State cricket at 14, he was so good. He might not be a great tactician, but if I was Australian I'd be gravely concerned about what might happen when he stops playing international cricket....
