I see our main challenge as being able to bowl yorkers, really. We seem incapable of doing it.
I actually thought Ponting's recent ODI form was better, but it's not actually that great. Last year (2010!) he only averaged 36. That's alright but it's definately not outstanding. I guess it's a whole heap better relative to his test form anyway.
