India and Australia were up for the 2nd Test match of the series at Melbourne, and Day 4 couldn't have been exceptional for India. India won the Boxing Day Test by eight wickets in extraordinary style to cover the bad memories of the Adelaide Test. Ricky Ponting expressed that it had been absolutely a troubling batting show from their side, and there was nothing wrong with the pitch.
Aussies were bowled out for a below-par score of 295 runs in the primary innings. Their part hung tight for a superior show in the second innings, yet Indian bowlers didn't let them have even a second where they could overwhelm. Their second innings show finished on only 200 runs and India just had 70 runs to chase.
It's simply been helpless batting: Ricky Ponting
Ricky Ponting said that accusing the pitch will be useless. The pitch has been totally wonderful as per Ponting. He thinks that there was only a tad of turn, yet players should anticipate that. It was Day three of the Test Match and almost no proposal was there for the quick bowlers, however, it's simply been helpless batting from the Australian side. Ponting thinks that they've got themselves out playing rash shots. The Australian team was finding difficulties to tick the scoreboard over on a regular basis. At the point when weight assembles, awful shots come. This is what happened for the Australian Cricket team in the second Test Match.
It stayed a major worry for Australia part as their backbone Steve Smith couldn't score in both the Tests. Likewise, has saw a dismal record coming in their account. It stated that it was the first time since 1988, wherein no batsmen could acquire a fifty in a home Test. Ponting added that their players should show some goal towards any semblance of Ravindra Jadeja, Ravi Ashwin, and Jasprit Bumrah. This implies facing a challenge too for the Australian batsmen.
Ponting also said that Indian bowlers really constrained the Australian batsman into committing errors. He thinks that players who wait for the great bowlers to do mistakes become an easy target automatically.
