and they said we can't play short pitch stuff...

by straight point



keep your head down and eyes off the line of the ball... pray that the ball whizzes past you without hitting anything... and let your countrymen proclaim that actually its us who can not play short pitch stuff...

RT Ponting reads as Retired Ponting.

Unfortunate I missed this; unusual for Ponting to not pull it, but he was softened by Roach earlier; surprised to hear some of the guys on commentary rue the Watson missed chance early on - and how that would've got Ponting to face Roach and the new ball early.

Even the best of the best can get knocked down at perth.

I think the criticism of not being able to play short pitch stuff was only meant for Rohit Sharma and Raina in the Indian team they have struggled even in India on batting tracks.

There is no similarity here.

thanks for the video sujan... as prompt as ever!

wasim... please see the video again... and tell me where does pitch features in it... ponting started bending down with his head pointing third man even before roach started bending his arm... :)

At your request I saw the video again and I don't think that he ducked before the bowler turned his arm, it was the angle, height and extra pace which caught him by surprise and left him no time to react.It was a very good ball.

The punty has explained that he "he has watched the video and the ball did not get up as much as he expected" or some such...

hmmm....we know we know.

he has also been dropping catches at slip of late - similar to haydy in his dying days...
