The former Australian cricketer and 2-time World Cup-winning captain Ricky Ponting is named as the assistant coach of the Australian National Cricket Team ahead of the CWC 2019 for focusing primarily on ODI batting.

Recently, the bowling coach, David Saker had resigned unexpectedly and Ricky Ponting is excited about his new role and he thinks that it is going to be tough for the other teams to beat Australia in the CWC 2019.

Ponting said after his appointment on Friday as quoted by Cricbuzz:
“I’m really excited to be joining the coaching group for this year’s World Cup,” “I’ve enjoyed my previous short-term roles with the ODI and T20 teams but World Cups take on a whole different meaning for me.

A few months back the Indian Premier League franchise Delhi Capitals have signed him as the Head Coach of the team for the IPL 2019. Previously he has also served as the mentor for the Mumbai Indians franchise in the Indian Premier league itself.

The Australian team is going to play their last International series before the CWC 2019 against the Indian team in India which will consist of 5 ODIs and 2 T20Is. And before the CWC 2019, the IPL 12 is to be played which will start from 23rd of March and many Australians players will not be able to take part in this edition as they will be resting for the 2019 World Cup which is going to held in England and Wales.
