Ponting reveals biggest challenges will be to blunt Proteas' pace attack in Test series

London, Oct. 28 (ANI): Former Australian cricketer Ricky Ponting has revealed the biggest challenges that he would be facing from South Africa's best bowling attack during the three-Test series, as he sat down for a tete-e-tete with cricket legend Ian Chappell.

"Well they had my number over there last time. My technique wasn't where it wanted to be when I was in South Africa last time and because they are so good they did expose those little flaws. I've had 18 months to rectify things and I'm certainly in a better place than I was at the start of that series in South Africa last year," News.com.au quoted Ponting, as saying.

"The thing about international cricket these days is you've got to keep reinventing yourself because there's nowhere to hide with all the technology we've got these days. Every innings you play can be scrutinised by the opposition, they would have done their homework on all of us so it's important we all prepare well," he added.

Ponting's comments come as South Africa head to Australia for their three-Test tour at Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth, with the first starting on November 9 at the Gabba. (ANI)
