11.6

Mathews to Ponting, no run, Ponting looks to whip this short of length ball to the leg side, he misses and is struck on the pad, that was heading down the leg side so there was only a muted lbw appeal

13.4

Mathews to Ponting, OUT, there's the breakthrough, that ball comes on slower than Ponting expected, he was early into the shot, and the ball lobs up towards midwicket, Suraj Randiv jumps forward and snaffles the ball, it was the offcutter from Mathews, not sure Ponting picked it
