Sydney, Sept.20 : Australian skipper Ricky Ponting believes that 25-year-old debutant Jason Krejza has the potential and skill to counter India's famed batting order in the forthcoming away series.
"It will be tough but I'm pretty excited about it," Ponting said about using his untried spinners against the world's best players of slow bowling.
Referring to Krejza, who moved from New South Wales to Tasmania to further his career two seasons ago, Ponting told news.com.au: "He's always impressed me from the time I first saw him at the academy five or six years ago."
"I've been talking about him quietly for a long time because what I see with him is what a lot of other off-spinners don't have, the ability to turn the ball really big. He puts more work on the ball than probably any off-spinner I've seen," he added.
Speaking about both Krejza and Bryce McCain, he said: "They are very different spinners but at the same time they could complement each other really well if we happen to play both in the same side."
