Ricky Ponting Appointed Head Coach of Washington Freedom in MLC

Ricky Ponting, who used to be captain of Australia, has hired as the head coach of the Washington Freedom for the second season of Major League Cricket (MLC) in the United States. Greg Shipperd, who is the coach of the Sydney Sixers and has been his guide for a long time, will step down. Shipperd led Freedom to a third-place finish in the first season.

Ponting’s Enthusiasm

Ricky Ponting stated, “I’m extremely excited to be joining the Washington Freedom in 2024.” “I’m excited to join Major League Cricket as US cricket grows. I’ve been impressed by everyone at Washington Freedom, and while it’s weird to replace my friend Greg Shipperd, who better to build a great franchise? As the season approaches, I’ll build on his efforts.”

Shipperd left to work on the Australian local teams Cricket New South Wales Blues and Sixers.

Ponting coaches Delhi Capitals in the IPL and has previously coached Mumbai Indians and the Australian men’s squad. He’ll coach Freedom for two years.

Our journey captivated the cricket-passionate local community, highlighting the emerging talent within the US and fostering a deep passion for the sport. Looking ahead, it’s evident that our aspirations demand a leader of unparalleled stature and expertise.”
