They’ve got to know that, they’ve got to accept that and understand that.”The team needs to as well because that could also be something that could be unsettling for a team.”Australia goes into the World Cup as defending champions but this time, they don’t go enter the tournament as outright favorites. Ponting feels things could get a lot easier for Warner and Smith if they are amongst the runs.”I think they are well equipped (to handle the scrutiny), but I think it could be a shock for them by the same token when they come back.

Their two-year ban for ball-tampering ends later this month and they will feature in the IPL beginning March 23.”I don’t think it is much of a challenge internally around the players.
