Well the one thing i didn't make too much out of now seems to have come back and bit Ponting right on his box... run rates.
With India battling in the second session of the second innings, Ponting has, it seems, (finally) incurred the wrath of the match ref for slow over rates. So instead of concentrating on winning this test, we are being served a session of mostly second string bowlers trying to make up time, to save Ricky from suspension. Good one Ponting!
Why does he consistantly end up in this position? Bad captaincy: time management, field settings, bowler selection, etc.
Fair enough that it happened during tea, and so he was possibly persueded by Neilson, Hughes and CA. if that is the case... well, words fail me!
Please explain to me what are we playing for?
