Ashes 2013: Australia’s Ricky Ponting ‘could return to help side’

Former captain Ricky Ponting would happily return to the Australia team for this summer’s Ashes, according to his old team-mate Michael Slater.

“If they said, ‘we are desperate Ricky, we want you’ I’m sure he would put his hand up,” Slater told BBC Radio 5 live.

Australia lost a Test series 4-0 to India earlier in 2013, and were defeated at home by South Africa at the end of 2012. Read more
