Coaching a 'Gut Feeling👌' for Ponting⭐

By Shadowfax🐎

Former Australian captain Ricky Ponting, who is the coach👔 of Mumbai🔷Indians in the IPL, has attracted a lot of praise for his gutsy calls👏 during matches which have generally paid off. MI had won the IPL🏆 in Punter's first stint at the helm last year👍. After Mumbai suffered a disastrous start to the season🙆, Ponting's tinkering has worked wonders for them - like McClenaghan's promotion to No.4 against KKR & promotion of Krunal Pandya up the batting order👌. Discussing his 'coaching manual', Ponting said🔈, "It's all about gut feel. I have a good understanding of the game and what we need at different times. The idea is to keep figuring what is needed and find solutions. For me, there is no coaching manual". Ponting, one of Australia's most successful captains, feels that the difference between captaincy and coaching was that one couldn't go out on the field and influence things directly😯. Instead, one had to make the adjustments and hope🙏 for the best.
