Ricky Ponting has given a stark assessment of Australia's T20 priorities, and despite two successive wins on the trot against New Zealand and England, the former captain is confident that we will never see major tournament success until severe changes are made.

The current assistant T20I coach believes that we aren't respecting the shortest format of the game, and our best players will never develop the skills to perform on the big stage if they aren't playing regular cricket together.

Cricket is one of the most popular sports in Australia at international, domestic and local levels. The peak administrative body for both professional and amateur cricket is Cricket Australia .

David Warner is the only member of the Test squad playing in the current tri-series with regular skipper Steve Smith resting ahead of the all-important tour to South Africa in March.

Ponting is positive that Australia isn't taking T20s seriously.

"You look back through the last five or six years, we haven't had the same captain for long periods, we very rarely get the best bowling attack in the group for long periods of time because there's other series and tournaments that have taken precedence over T20 cricket," Ponting told cricket.com.au.

"These are all the things I've spelled out to Cricket Australia for me to get more involved down the track is being able to prioritise the game and give the captain and players a chance at a good extended run at playing for their country.

Another reason why China has been successful is the high rate of its savings, which it recycles. China had consistently pushed its one big selling point, which is its large market.

"The captain has to learn what the strengths and weaknesses are of certain players in the line-up. Our very best players don't play much T20 cricket at all."

When Australian chairman of selectors Trevor Hohns announced the South African squad, he made that clear.

"The South African series is a very important one and we have made no secret of our desire to improve our record away from home," Hohns said.

"As such, we wanted to ensure the players had the best possible preparation and that means playing the tour match prior to the first Test."

Perhaps a revolution should take place that involves T20 cricket being completely separated from the other forms.

Ponting, who also coaches the Delhi Daredevils in the IPL, can lead a fresh squad that is headlined by current short form stars such as Aaron Finch, D'Arcy Short, Andrew Tye and Chris Lynn.

Our T20 cricket needs an overhaul, as the former captain has suggested, and until we see major changes we won't be successful on the world stage.

Ahead of T20 World Cup in 2020, it might be time to start listening to arguably the smartest mind in Australian cricket.
