Thieves entered the house of former Australia skipper Ricky Ponting and stole his car which was parked in the driveway of his highly secure Melbourne mansion. Police operations were carried out to track the car. The Special Operations Group and Airwing were deployed . Not long after the hunt was carried out, the car was found abandoned in Melbourne’s Camberwell area. Two men were spotted fleeing and they evaded the police who are looking out for the suspects. According to reports, when the thieves broke in, Ponting was with his wife and three children in the house. Ponting is shocked as to how the thieves managed to break into his highly secure mansion.
Ricky Ponting will be resuming his coaching duties for the Delhi Capitals franchise for the upcoming Indian Premier League 2021. He may also join the team management at the auction event which is scheduled to take place on February 18. It may be recalled that last year, Ponting led the team to their first-ever final before they eventually lost to defending champions Mumbai. The Delhi Capitals franchise have retained 19 cricketers from their 2020 squad for the upcoming IPL 2021.
