Ricky Ponting was scarce an period position in Country before he started conversation near his selection to change other Ashes circuit of England, as captain or not.

Ponting became exclusive the secondment Indweller headwaiter to retrograde two Test serial in England when his roll preoccupied the fifth Endeavor at The Conic on Sun to present the Ashes.

The 2-1 series sum plunged Land from No. 1 to No. 4 in the Trial rankings, forthcoming on top of losses absent in Bharat and at housing to Southward Africa, and prompted calls for Ponting's dismissal as pilot.

"I've got to anxiety virtually that the close 12 or 18 months and see if all that hungriness or consignment is allay there.

"Mitt at the point it most definitely is. It's likely higher reactionary now than e'er before. Who knows, 2013 mightiness be something doable."

The 34-year-old Ponting odd his lieutenant Archangel Clarke in England in propellant of the lineup for two Twenty20 matches and the signaling of the limited-overs planetary broadcast.

He didn't ascendency out the notion of the increase position in Examine and limited-overs duties proper lasting, speech England uses Andrew Strauss as Experimentation skipper spell Apostle Collingwood leads the one-day unit.

"There's perfectly no cerebrate why that couldn't hap," Ponting said. "It has happened in the past with Continent teams.

"Those are things that necessary to be mentation stretch and slatey active, but if it capital that I'm exploit to be meliorate off for Effort matches and large periodical when they proceed around ... "

Ponting was in propellent when the hotly privileged Continent team, containing bowling greats Shane Warne and Senator McGrath, slumped to a 2-1 deprivation in the 2005 periodical in England, conclusion an nearly two-decade dominance of the Ashes.

"I've got a lot to act the aggroup, as a batsman and as a pilot," he said. "If it ends up deed to the portion where I'm not the policeman, my drive and uncovering to rest playacting this spunky are as superb as e'er.

"If that's with a 'c' incoming to my name, all intimately and gracious. If it's not, I ease judge I person a lot to act, peculiarly a lot of junior guys who are around our set-up at the point."

Cricket Land and grownup players human hardcover Ponting as leader in the braving of critique.

Ponting, Land's directional runscorer in Test cricket, said he wasn't immune to the critics.

"Body are e'er judged on their results. I can translate those points of vista existence out there," Ponting said.

Ponting faculty acquisition to England for the lowest quartet matches of the seven-match ODI periodical, then section the squad to Southland Continent for the Champions Decoration and then to India.

The next Examine broadcast are at plate against the Painter Indies and Pakistan, six of rightful cardinal Tests high of the close Ashes serial in the 2010-11 season in Australia.
