February 22 while the four-Test series against India will begin at Pune on February 23. The tightly-packed scheduleA�means much of Australiaa��s premier stars will be busy in their preparations for the gruelling series against India in their own backyard.
Cricket Australia themselves have taken an unprecedented step by the appointment of Langer and Gillespie, while head coach Darren Lehmann marshals his troops in India and now, Ponting has been added to the coaching staff for the Sri Lanka tour.
Ponting who was head coach of IPL franchise Mumbai Indians stepped down to make way for Sri Lankan Mahela Jayawardene. Pontinga��s decision to step down from his role with the Mumbai Indians franchise was being seen in direct link with the decision of Rodney Marsh to step down as the chief selector following Australiaa��s disappointing form of late, especially in the Test format.
