We all agree that Ponting is a great great batsman perhaps only second to Bradman when he finishes up. But are there any fans of his Captaincy on here ?

Is he really a great captain or just fortunate to be captaining a great side ? Would any other guy do just as well captaining the same Aussie side

I think he's a really good captain too. During the 2005 Ashes series Michael Vaughan was the better captain, by a long way. Since then Ponting has really got his act together and his captaincy has improved a lot. He is Australia's 2nd most successful captain after Alan Border.

not a fan of his captaincy he has a great team that rallies around him and aids him


Fleming is the ultimate captain imo

Yes true Mannie, having a team like Australia does help a lot with winning. Fleming was a good captain I agree.

Ponting just has a very good team around him with lots of expierience so they captain themselves basically!
Graeme Smith of South Africa is the same...

yes that's a good point. I bet Ponting doesn't actually have to much with the team he's got. As Leo says, the basically captain themselves.

i dunno. I have his book from 2007 and i think he does a fair bit more than u guys give him credit for. (although i may be a biased aussie) lol! .

I think the better players have helped but nothing massive. Although i do respect stephen fleming tremendously because of his captaincy and what hes done for new zealand cricket.

having a good team is 90% of the job done for the captain.

So i think Ponting has had it too easy flower

The thing with having big players is their ego's and trying to all keep them happy aswell, which I feel he has done well!

but that would also be down to the Coach, management, back room staff etc etc
I dont think this team has BIGG ego players like in the past!!!

I mean I think Alan Border had more of a problem with that more than Ponting and his playground buddies.

Think ponting has allways had it a bit easy if things went wrong in the past he could asllways through the ball to Warne or Mcragh now he can do the same with Lee. A good point ids he hasn't let it effect his batting.

thats why they say a batsmen makes a good captain, since he can lead the way through his batting

also i think Ponting hasnt been under much pressure when he bats, since the Team is hardly up against the wall from its opposition.

Pressure being a main factor in how your innings goes.

New Zealand only team i can think of!
