Gabba Test: Ponting disappointed with Australia’s approach Indian telanders

Former Australia captain Ricky Ponting praised the disciplined and brilliant batting of lower-ranked Washington Sundar and Shardul Thakur as the Indian team remains in the fourth and decisive Test match of the series.

In response to Australia’s first innings score of 369, the Indian team’s score was 186 for six at one time, but after that Washington Sundar (62) and Shardul Thakur (67), who made the debut, scored 123 runs for the seventh wicket.

With a crucial partnership, India was successful in scoring 336 runs in the first innings. “I was a bit disappointed with the way the Australians went about it, to be honest. I don’t think they were aggressive enough, didn’t bowl enough short balls. They let the Indian batsmen be way too comfortable at the crease, “ quoted Ponting.

“They almost bowled the way those batsmen would have wanted them to bowl. It was not until we saw a bit of a barrage from Starc and even when Shardul got out (bowled by Pat Cummins), it was no surprise it was a ball after a bouncer. I don’t think the Aussies were anywhere near aggressive enough, “he added.
