Guwahati, Nov. 8 (PTI): Australian skipper Ricky Ponting today praised his Indian counterpart Sourav Ganguly saying his return to action would rejuvenate the hosts in their crucial last two games.
“Ganguly is a very good leader. His return to the field would bring a spring in the steps of the Indians,” Ponting told newspersons here on Saturday. “He is also a great one-day player who has more than 20 one-day hundreds to his name,” Ponting said.
Ponting also lauded the Indian team despite the two consecutive defeats, saying, “A couple of losses may not have augured well for the side. But they are a very good team.”
