Former Australian cricketer Rickey Ponting has been a master of cricket analysis. The legendary Aussie skipper has pinpointed batters’ techniques and flaws to perfection in the past and he did it again during the 2nd Ashes Test at Adelaide.
During the second day of the ongoing pink-ball Test between Australia and England in Adelaide, Australia all-rounder Cameron Green got dismissed cheaply again. The Aussie all-rounder, who was bowled for a first-ball duck by Ollie Robinson in the first Test in Brisbane, was dismissed by Ben Stokes.
Green was dismissed by a beauty of a delivery from Stokes. But the highlight of that wicket was Ricky Ponting’s prediction. Before the dismissal, Ponting was talking about the changed technique of Green and explained why he thinks England would attack Green’s stumps. Just on the very next ball, Stokes bowled a straight delivery and bowled Green.

"A very distinct change of tactics now for Cam Green – they'll get a lot fuller and a lot straighter, they'll target his stumps."

Talking about the match, England made a strong comeback after a poor Day 1. Soon after Marnus Labuschagne’s century, Ollie Robinson got rid of him and then the wickets started to come at regular intervals. Currently, Australia are 331/5.
