Ponting’s bold prediction about the winner of IPL 2024

In addition to the lighthearted moment captured in the video, Ponting also made headlines with his bold prediction regarding the outcome of IPL 2024.

During the pre-match press conference ahead of the GT vs DC clash in Ahmedabad, Ponting expressed his belief that the team with a more aggressive batting approach would likely emerge victorious in the tournament. He emphasized the significance of posting substantial scores, hinting at a shift towards more attacking batting strategies in this year’s IPL.

“Quite often, big tournaments like the IPL and the Big Bash back in Australia have been won by the best defensive bowling teams. But the way this IPL is going – and [with] the different rules in the IPL – it looks like it will be won by the team that’s most willing to take on the bowling, and try and post some really big scores. I think it’s potentially more attacking batting that’s going to win this IPL than defensive bowling,” said Ponting in the pre-match conference for GT vs DC clash in Ahmedabad.
