Team Australia picks between Ponting and Gilchrist

Former Australian World Cup winning captain and one of the most dynamic batsmen in history, Ricky Ponting has been voted as the greatest ODI player for Australia in a recent poll conducted by Cricket Australia (CA).

Members of the current Australian team were also asked to chose between the finalists of the poll i.e., Adam Gilchrist and Ricky Ponting as it turned out that the Aussies prefer the great wicket-keeper batsman over their current assistant coach.

Fast bowler Jason Behrendorff went with Gilchrist mainly because he hails from Western Australia while Glenn Maxwell chose the wicket-keeper batsman who changed the way cricket was being played according to him.

While former wicket-keeper batsman Brad Haddin and Steve Smith went with Ponting, there were also players who were on the fence as they decided against choosing among the two before the results of the survey had come in.
