Former Australia captain Ricky Ponting believes the size and weight of bats used in Test cricket should be regulated to ensure a greater balance between bat and ball.At present, crickets laws only limit the length and width of bats, not the depth or weight. That has led to the development of bats made from lighter material but with extremely thick edges, such as the Gray-Nicolls Kaboom bats used by David Warner.Speaking at a recent Australian Cricket Society function, Ponting said he had no problem with such bats being used in the shorter forms of the game but believed they should be banned from Test cricket. The main issue, Ponting argued, was the lightweight materials used, and he said that players should not be prevented from using big bats as long as they were also heavy.I dont know how they are doing it to make the size of bats they are making now, Ponting said. The modern day bats and weight in particular -- its just a completely different game. Full credit to them. If they are there use them, if theres a better golf club or tennis racquet everyone will use it. Its nothing against the players.If you are strong enough to use them thats fine, but you should not get a bat thats bigger in size than [MS] Dhonis but a whole lot lighter. Chris Gayles the same. Everyone talks about Chris Gayles bat size, but its 3? lbs. Hes big enough and strong enough to use it. I only get worried when they are really big and really light.Ponting will be at the next meeting of the MCCs World Cricket Committee at Lords early next week, and he said bat size and weight would be one of the topics discussed.I think it will happen, he said. I am going in a couple of weeks for a World Cricket Committee meeting and that will be one of the topics talked about. I dont mind it for the shorter versions of the game.I would actually say youve got a bat you can use in Test cricket and a certain type of bat you can use in one-day cricket and T20 cricket. The short forms of the game survive on boundaries - fours and sixes - whereas the Test game is being dominated too much now by batters because the game is a bit easier for them than it was.
