Ricky Ponting Declines Indian Cricket Team Coaching Offer

New Delhi: Former Australian cricket captain Ricky Ponting has turned down a coaching offer extended by the Indian cricket board, citing his commitment to the Delhi Capitals franchise in the Indian Premier League (IPL) as his primary focus.

Ponting, who recently led the Delhi Capitals in the IPL 2024 season, revealed to the International Cricket Council (ICC) that the Indian cricket board had offered him the coaching role for the Indian cricket team during the Indian Premier League (IPL), but he turned down the offer. Pointing decided against the offer, emphasizing that the role wouldn’t allow him to maintain his involvement with the Delhi Capitals.

He said that there was an attempt to know my interest in coaching, I prefer coaching the national team, but there is much more to life. At this time, I want to spend more time with my family and loved ones, he added.

Ricky Ponting said, that opting to coach a national team, would mean he cannot coach in the IPL. Coaching the national team means a job of 10 or 11 months in a year and this does not fit into my lifestyle, which he claimed he’s enjoying.

It is worth noting that the current coach of the Indian cricket team, Rahul Dravid, will complete his tenure with the conclusion T20 World Cup 2024.
