RICKY PONTING ON “SPECIAL” JAKE FRASER-MCGURK:

“He’s been known as a really talented young player for three or four years now, maybe even longer than that,” Ponting said about Fraser-McGurk, who has been added to the Australian ODI squad.

“This year it seems the penny’s really dropped with him, a change of states from Victoria to South Australia.”

Punter said Fraser-McGurk’s domestic white ball form has been eye catching.

“He’s done some pretty crazy things in domestic cricket, and then we saw what he’s able to do when he takes the handbrake off and lets the leash off in BBL cricket,” he said.

“This year he was the most exciting player in the tournament, and when you’ve got guys like [Glenn] Maxwell and [Marcus] Stoinis and Tim David and these sort of guys, it means I see something pretty special in him.”
