Ricky Ponting talks to Ian Chappell about his retirement plans, his slump in form, his comeback and his preparation ahead of the upcoming international season in an interview in the Daily Telegraph.
Ian Chappell: Would you prefer to get a tap on the shoulder from the selectors, rather than just get dropped?
Ricky Ponting: I don't think it would get to that. I'm a realist and I'll understand that if there's players out there who can play the game better than me, I'll be the first to accept it and walk away. I'm not going to let it get to the stage where the selectors drop me. I think I'll identify the right time. Everyone I've spoken to that's retired have said they've felt when it's the right time, when they can't find it in themselves to elevate their game. I haven't felt that yet at all so I know it's not the right time. I'm just going to prepare for the Brisbane test match, hopefully get a few there and see what happens.
