Vinay Kumar to Ponting, no run, moves a long way across outside off and shoulders arms to a good length ball that bounces nicely through to Dhoni

5.4

Vinay Kumar to Ponting, no run, superb line this, at 138.1 kph, Ponting slightly uncertain whether to play at this pitched up delivery close to off, and allows it to go in the end

5.5

Vinay Kumar to Ponting, 1 run, lots of bounce from just short of a length, he comes forward, drops it close to the pitch on the off side and gets off the mark

Australia 16/1   RT Ponting 1* (4b)

6.1

Kumar to Ponting, no run, hangs in the air on a good length and comes back in sharply, but starts too far outside off and is left alone comfortably

7.2

Vinay Kumar to Ponting, no run, hits high on the bat as he comes forward to a short of a length ball

7.3

Vinay Kumar to Ponting, no run, it is overcast and Vinay and PK are testing Australia, this is not the Vinay who turned up in Perth, Ponting lunges forward as he sees it pitching on a length, but it rears up and moves away a bit to beat him

7.4

Vinay Kumar to Ponting, no run, pushed off the front foot to mid off

7.5

Vinay Kumar to Ponting, OUT, he's got Ponting now, Vinay has bowled much better deliveries than this one today, Ponting saw some rare width and went to punch it, it seemed to sit up a tad from short of a length and he ended up hitting it straight to short extra cover

Australia 19/2   RT Ponting 2 (12b)
