“If you had asked me three years ago, I would have said yes. But the fact that it has slowed down as much as it did… yes, I still think it’s possible for him, no doubt about that, Ponting said on The ICC Review.

“Look, I never say never with Virat, because you know that once he’s up a bit, you know how hungry he is and how much he loves success. I’ll never say never, that’s for sure.” said the two-time Aussie World Cup winning skipper.
