'Playing good spinners has always been Ponting's Achilles heel'

September 19, 2008

Chappell feels the reason why the Aussie skipper has never been comfortable against spin is his impatience.

"Playing good spinners has always been Ponting's Achilles heel. He tends to push out at the ball when defending rather than letting the ball come to him," Chappell was quoted as saying by The Herald Sun.

  • "Good players of spin reach out to smother the spin in attack, but in defence let the ball come to them. Ponting has been dismissed for so many low scores, he hasn't found a method that will allow him to survive this danger period," he added.
