Former Australia captain Ricky Ponting on Wednesday admitted that he's held discussions with Cricket Australia (CA) to coach the team for the next ICC World T20, but maintains that no agreement has been reached. It was earlier reported that with Darren Lehmann's contract as coach expiring in 2019, CA is in negotiations with Ponting to coach the home team for the event, which is to be played in Australia in 2020. "I've had discussions with CA for a long time about getting involved somewhere in some way shape or form," the veteran cricketer said. "I would like to get involved somewhere if it works out that way, but certainly nothing has been decided as yet," Ponting assured.
