Ponting opts out of Twenty20

Australian cricket captain Ricky Ponting this week announced that he was retiring from international Twenty20.

The reason given is that he wants to prolong his cricket career and so I think that will give Michael Clarke a chance to captain one Australian side.

This retirement is just for international cricket and so Ponting will still play for Tasmania and Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League.

I think this is a very good chance for the other Australian cricketers to step up and cover the gap left by Ponting.

I am bit surprised he retired from Twenty20 because there doesn't seem to be a lot of Twenty20 matches but a lot of one-dayers like the seven match series currently going on in India.
