David Warner can be leading run scorer in this World Cup: Ponting

Vastavam web: Warner was at his devastating best when he smashed his first century since making a comeback from his year-long ban and helped his side beat Pakistan by 41 runs on Wednesday. Warner has accumulated 255 runs so far in the tournament and is just five runs behind Bangladesh’s Shakib Al Hasan, who tops the list of runs scored.

Ponting also revealed that he spoke to Warner ahead of the Pakistan match and advised him to just ‘see ball, hit ball’. “I think in the back of his own mind to a certain degree, I think he was a little bit more worried about getting out than scoring runs. We said to him after the last game, ‘mate, just go out and see ball, hit ball.’ He got off to a good start and continued on for 30 or 40 overs,” he said.
