Ricky Ponting: 'David Warner would have learned from mistakes'

Ricky Ponting believes that Australia batsman David Warner has learned from his mistakes.

Former Australia captain Ricky Ponting believes that batsman David Warner will become a better cricketer following his recent disciplinary issues.

The 26-year-old sparked controversy when he was banned from a Champions Trophy match and two tour games in the summer for punching England batsman Joe Root.

"The thing about Davey, he hasn't had a break from any cricket for about two years," BBC Sport quotes Ponting as saying. "It's such a high-pressurised environment.

"You need to be able to get away and let a bit of steam off here and there. Whenever he has tried to do that, he has got himself in a little bit of trouble.

"He would have learned from that and it will make him a better person and hopefully a better cricketer."

Meanwhile, Australia are preparing to welcome England to Brisbane next month for the start of the return Ashes series.
