Vettori :evil: points finger at Ponting

NEW Zealand skipper Daniel Vettori has sparked a tense Trans-Tasman showdown by naming Ricky Ponting, Andrew Symonds and Matthew Hayden as cricket's most aggressive nigglers.

And Vettori ruffled more feathers when he claimed his opposite number Ponting was often "spoiling for a fight".
Don't forget that the summer of cricket continues on with live text blogs and scoreboards, plus two hour highlights every night on Fox Sports throughout the New Zealand and South Africa series.

He also insisted he was not surprised last summer's series between Australia and India had descended into a bitter slanging match.

"If a team was going to play the game hard and stand up to everything the Aussies hurled at them, there was going to be trouble," Vettori writes in his new book, Turning Point.

"I don't think many of us were surprised about the so-called 'Monkeygate' affair.

"There are always a few individuals in every team who overstate their position or overplay their importance.

"Ponting led his team very aggressively and probably hasn't often had to face an opposition team that's been just as aggressive in response.

"Add to the mix Matthew Hayden and Symonds - who are always at you on the field - and you've probably got the three most overtly aggressive players in world cricket.

"They like to get under the skin of their opponents, whereas the other guys in the Aussie team just get on with the game."
Get your kids in 2 cricket!
