Ponting said of their upcoming match. “For the first time this season, we had back-to-back victories.”

“We’ve had a rollercoaster campaign, but we’ve produced some fantastic cricket.” I always preach about emerging at the proper time and having our best cricket after the competition. I have a hunch the lads are about to achieve just that.”

‘Experienced players will have to come up for the team’: Ricky Ponting

In the key encounter against Mumbai Indians, the Australian icon  Ricky Ponting remarked, that the team’s skilled veterans will have to stand up. “At the top of the lineup, David Warner has done an outstanding job. Mitchell Marsh’s devastating potential at number 3 has also been demonstrated. Kuldeep has been outstanding among the spinners, and Axar has bowled economically as well.”
