As of now I will say no. But I don't think we can compare them at this stage. Ponting is leading Australia for a much longer period than Dravid. Moreover I personally feel the Team Australia is so strong, do they really need any captaincy? Because all of the boys do their job more than 100%.

I think you are write Australian team is so strong, what happens now is important after the retirmnet of legends Warne Mecgrath etc they will struggle for sure to maintain that record, Ponting is a good Captain when Compared to Dravid, but Dravid is technically for more better batsman

no ways. ponting is far better captain than dravid. he is aggressive and he takes very nice decissions on the field. he is confident and that reflects in his batting. and when he plays then there are very few bowlers who can contain his run flow. and he is also having lot of runs in one day and test. the only thing is that he does not have that much publicity like sachin has in india. and in aus they believe in team not in individuals,. so they dnt papmer one single. player. and even our teams contract system is strange which brings a doubt in my mind http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/561950.aspx

No point in comparing dravid and ponting, dravid is much much better as he has more batting techinque then ponnting, ponting plays many of his shorts orthodox, which is not stylish but powerfull, however the stylish thing is the good batting techinque not the power ! thats why if dhoni makes more runs, and dravid makes half then dravid will still be stylish !

I think both Dravid and Ponting is same type of player. In test cricket their records are more or less same. Except ponting has made more centuries than dravid. The reason is Dravid is a nervous ninty player. He was out in ninty score more than nine times. If we add it up with his no. of centuries then it equals Ponting or more than ponting.
