Hussey backs 'absolute champion' Ponting to fire in Perth Test

Sydney, Nov 29(ANI): Michael Hussey has backed veteran Ricky Ponting to overcome the slump in his form against world number one South Africa in the series-deciding final Test match at Perth.

Hussey said it is unfair to question Ponting's batting credential since he has proven himself throughout his long career.

"I just think it's crazy to doubt someone like Ricky Ponting. He's an absolute champion. It's just the nature of this game. Sometimes little things don't go your way," the Sydney Morning Herald quoted Hussey, as saying.

"He got a couple of fantastic deliveries that would get anybody out. The good thing is he's still in a positive frame of mind, he's still working hard," he added. (ANI)
