Ricky Ponting’s compatriot Michael Clarke doesn’t think that India’s triumph in Sri Lanka is a lesser feat in comparison to the other overseas triumphs that they have had so far.
Most of the pundits are not willing to give too much importance to the whitewash that India secured over their neighbouring Island nation recently as they are of the view that neither the opposition nor the conditions were challenging enough for India in that series.
But Clarke’s view differs in that regard as he reckons that the victories that come on foreign soil, whichever opposition they may come against, they should be given their due recognition because playing the longest form of the game on foreign soil is always challenging.
Clarke stresses that for the past some time, most of the teams in the Cricketing circuit are having troubles on tours. So if any team shows consistency as a touring team going ahead, that team would establish itself at the top of the rankings.
