Ponting pulled from Pura Cup tie


Ricky Ponting will not play in Tasmania’s Pura Cup match against Western Australia starting in Hobart on Monday (today).

Ponting has been withdrawn from the Tigers line-up at the request of Cricket Australia. Many of Australia’s front-line players have niggling injuries or are resting during the rare lull between the Sri Lanka Test series and the Chappell-Hadlee Trophy games. Ponting played in Tasmania’s one-day match against the Warriors on Saturday but Cricket Australia’s “no-risk” strategy has meant he will not take part in the four-day contest.

“The call’s been made by the Australian team physio and chairman of selectors,” Tony Harrison, the Tasmanian Cricket Association deputy chairman and a Cricket Australia director, said. “We’ve been aware he’s been carrying a couple of niggles this season and he’s got a busy six months coming up, so it’s just part of player management,” he added.
