Former Australian captain, Ricky Ponting, has been brought on board by the struggling Mumbai Indians (MI) in an “advisory role.” Ponting had started off as captain of the Mumbai Indians in IPL 6 before dropping out due to poor form.
In an announcement on the Mumbai Indians’ official Twitter page, the team used the #PontingIsBack hashtag to say:
The extent of Ponting’s new role in the MI set-up is yet unknown, but with the way things stand currently, any help he can provide will be more than welcome. Mumbai are currently the bottom-ranked team with three losses in as many games. Ponting will join Sachin Tendulkar in a behind-the-scenes role for the Mumbai Indians.
