Ricky Ponting has backed Alex Carri as the wicketkeeper for Australia in the upcoming World Cup. Not only that Aaron Finch is injured, but as a temporary captain, the batting coach of the team will have support.
27-year-old Kerry has become one of the most confident of the upcoming World Cup coach Justin Langer, who made quick progress and gained leadership qualities from the former captain. Ponting said: "Alex Carey is the best wicketkeeper."
Chief selector Trevor Hones recently described Test captain Tim Paine, Matthew Wade and Peter Handscomp as potential wicketkeeper. But Ponting believes that the chance of getting the job done after winning eight ODIs in one match. He said, "Because of the ability to bat in 360 degrees, top order or at the end of the innings he is a dangerous batsman. He is a hardheart and in my opinion, according to the party, Kerry is the right person. '
Ponting also said, "I think Kerry has achieved great leadership qualities. If Finch is anything in the World Cup or the highest level of leadership in the tournament, but I do not have much experience, and although I have never led the Australia team before, I think that Carey is the right person. "
Kerry is co-captain with Pat Cummins and Usman Khawaja. If you miss Finch due to a hamstring injury, then you have the possibility of leading the team.
