“Rather than playing it out in the media” Ricky Ponting’s Advice To Warner And Johnson Amid The Ongoing Tussle

Amid the tussle between David Warner and Mitchell Johnson, the former Australian skipper advised a solution.

Since the announcement of the Australian squad for the Test series against Pakistan, the opening left-handed batter of the Australian team, David Warner, and former Australia’s left-arm bowler, Mitchell Johnson, are making headlines due to their ongoing feud, where Mitchell Johnson seemed pretty unhappy with David Warner’s selection in the squad for the Test series in his column. Mitchell Johnson wrote that his selection in the test series was not because of his form but because of his intention to retire after the series. Since then, there has been an ongoing debate in the cricket community about the ongoing spat.

Earlier, Mitchell Johnson, mentioning the ball-tampering incident, wrote these lines in his columns about David Warner.

It’s been five years and David Warner has still never really owned the ball-tampering scandal,” Johnson wrote. “Now the way he is going out is underpinned by more of the same arrogance and disrespect to our country. As we prepare for David Warner’s farewell series, can somebody please tell me why?

Former Australian skipper Ricky Ponting has now jumped into the ongoing tussle and advised a solution to put an end to this feud between the cricketers. He wants both cricketers to have a face-to-face conversation so that they can settle things between them. While talking to Sunrise, he said this:

I have to get in between these two guys at some stage … I think I need to be the mediator and get them both in a room and let them have it out rather than playing it out in the media. They’re both pretty feisty characters and we know this issue that’s come up now goes back six or eight months, back to the Ashes selection. That’s where it all started. It sounds like an issue that’s gone on without either of them sitting down and having a face-to-face conversation. I’d like to see that happen,”
