He stated that England has a superb White-Ball cricket setup and is capable of defeating other teams.

I actually think England are an outstanding white-ball team and they have an outstanding white-ball set-up. I just think the three teams on paper that look to have most class and the most match-winners are India, Australia and England.” Said Ponting.
