The second Test match of England vs Australia Ashes series 2023 will be played from Wednesday (June 28). Ahead of this match, former Australia captain Ricky Ponting has given valuable advice to two batsmen to face the England bowling attack. Australia won the first Test at Edgbaston by two wickets. It was the first match of the ICC World Test Championship 2023-25 cycle.
Ricky Ponting has advised Australia’s explosive batsmen Marnus Labuschagne and Travis Head. Both these players were seen struggling in the first Test of the Ashes Series 2023. According to Ponting, Labuschagne must focus on the basics to succeed.
Speaking to the ICC, Ponting said, “I’ll wait for him to come and ask me. It’s not my place. I am not included in his coach list. I am just a former player and understanding what he is doing. However, I would like to discuss his batting with Labuschagne. Because, from what I’ve seen in the last few weeks, he’s making things difficult.”
“I know he needs to believe in that, which has made him the second-ranked batsman in the world in Test cricket over the years,” Ponting said. I would tell him to watch some videos of when he was at his best and remember those things and do it again.”
Ponting also believes that Head will have to deal with the bouncy balls of England’s fast bowlers initially. He said that first of all he had to understand that it would happen, he had to hope for it to happen.
“I think he has to work on his thinking about it,” Ponting said. What is his best approach to tackle this type of bowling, do the bowlers want to target him? Want to play a hook and pull shot against a body ball? Can he find a way to release the ball? He can release the ball well, which will try to tire the bowler.”
The second Test match between England vs Australia will be played at Lord’s ground in London. Australia won the first test by 2 wickets. (former captain ricky ponting offers batting advice to marnus labuschagne and travis head ahead of lords test)
