Ind vs Oz...Day 5

1513: 91 minutes and 18.4 overs and nothing to live update! It's all over, covers are off, they are sprinkling water on the 22-yard that was the centrestage of the drama that lasted a little over four days.

Ponting admitted Australia are not accustomed to leading 0-1 in a Test series. And that they are not accustomed to be beaten like this. And that there is no rift between him and Brett Lee.

1525: Zaheer, meanwhile, is busy attending the hearing after charged for an assortment of Level II offences -- over-appealing, over-celebrating 9after Hayden's dismissal), over-chatting and other overdeeds.

1530: Indian team disperses and will re-assemble on 26th. Ponting wants two day's introspection break.

Worst defeat of his career? "Possibly", says Punter.


1535: Dhoni has that midas touch, everything he touches turns gold. I think reason enough and time ripe to replace P Chidambaram. Anyone at 10, Janpath listening?

SP, you got it right. He meant possibly worst defeat as of now. Worse awaits Punter.

Scorpi...too much of air pollution all around.
Regarding Punter, his candour stumped me. Not even in my wildest dreams I could foresee Punter(I have better peoplem to dream about anyway) coming up a series of confessions. "We are not accustomed to trail a Test series 1-0, we are not accustomed to get beaten like this" and then "possibly" the worst defeat. I have clearly forgiven him.
