Test final race; Ricky Ponting’s refusal to exclude Pakistan

Former Australian captain Ricky Ponting says that Pakistan cannot be called out of the race for the ICC Test Championship final. Cricketers did not get a chance to play on their home grounds for a long time but their passion for the game did not die down, world-class players are continuously emerging from Pakistani soil.

The former Australian captain said that South Africa proved to be a surprise package in the World Test Championship, second-ranked Australia is also a strong candidate to play in the finals, but they have to perform well in the 4 Test matches played on the tour of India. Pakistan, India, and Sri Lanka are also capable of surprising their opponents and reaching the decider.
