Roach vows to attack Ponting

Port of Spain, Wed, 18 Apr 2012 ANI

Port of Spain, Apr 18 (ANI): West Indies pacer Kemar Roach, who rocked Ricky Ponting's career in 2009 by finding a chink in his armour, has vowed to take on the former Australian skipper during the remainder of the three-Test series.

It was Roach who thundered a bouncer onto Ponting's elbow during a Test in Perth in 2009, which forced the Australian skipper to retire hurt.

Roach has already landed a blow on Ponting in the Caribbean, capturing his wicket in the first innings in Port of Spain - the fourth time in five matches that has happened, The Sydney Morning Herald reports.

"I say he's a challenge, I won't say I have the wood on him, he's a great batsman, I respect what he's done in cricket, but I have a job to do for my team. If that's to run at him, then I'm going to do it," Roach said.

Roach is relishing the duel with Australia's most prolific Test run-scorer.

"Ricky Ponting's a great batsman, a legend of cricket. To get that wicket, on a difficult pitch, easy for batting, it's very good," he said. (ANI)
