Bedi slams Ponting's captaincy over 'wrong handling' of Hauritz

Former Indian off-spinner Bishen Singh Bedi has questioned Ricky Pontings captaincy for the way he used off-spinner Nathan Hauritz during Australias one-wicket first Test loss in Mohali.


New Delhi, Oct 9: Former Indian off-spinner Bishen Singh Bedi has questioned Ricky Ponting's captaincy for the way he used off-spinner Nathan Hauritz during Australia's one-wicket first Test loss in Mohali.

"I think Ricky Ponting is a very good captain, but I'm not sure he's a very good spinner's captain. It didn't matter when Shane Warne was his spinner. Shane Warne didn't need a captain, he was his own," Fox Sports quoted Bedi, as saying.

"The way Nathan Hauritz is handled is wrong. People have to have more faith in him. I think he is a brilliant off-spinner. He's used as a stock bowler, but I think he is better than that if they let him attack." The Australian team has to give Nathan the confidence and support he deserves. He is your best spinner, but he's not treated like that," he added.

Bedi further said that Hauritz would do better than England's Graeme Swann if Ponting is able manage his spinner.

"There is only one reason why Graeme Swann is more successful. The captain of England (Andrew Strauss) uses Graeme Swann better than the captain of Australia uses Nathan Hauritz. Ponting doesn't know how to use him," Bedi said.

"Nathan is not in India to be a tourist. He's not supposed to be watching Marcus North bowl. Nathan is a very pure spinner. The ball comes out so cleanly, I think he's outstanding as long as he has the right backing," he added.
