Cardiff (Wales), July 8 (ANI): Australian cricket captain Ricky Ponting has urged Welsh fans to support his team as the Ashes series starts in Cardiff today.
Ponting believes that old hostilities between the Welsh and the English could cause Cardiff locals to support Australia.
"I'm actually expecting a lot of support down here, considering we are in Wales," The Sun quoted Ponting, as saying.
"Things might be the opposite way around, we might have more Australian supporters here than anything else," he added.
Both Australia and England are refusing to divulge their teams for the much-anticipated Ashes opener.
"Only found out yesterday about Brett's injury, we haven't finalised our team yet," Ponting said. (ANI)
