    Any side with Mark Taylor in it is clearly better than any side without him.

    I posted a few pictures of his career, I forgot that every innings he's ever played has been an unbeaten century and he's never been dismissed.

    A ton would be a great way to celebrate the milestone.

    Love the ability to come out and counterpunch from No. 3. Nothing like Australia being 1/6 and then all of a sudden 1/30 with Ponting 20 off 15 etc.and back on the offensive during our great era.

    Thought Tony Greig said that Ponting was "chaired" onto the ground; not cheered.

    And he's had a great start to the game.

    Overrated. I've scored as many runs in my 150th Test as he has.
    Or something.

    Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

    Yes, but it's long away. I reckon World Cup would be his last hurrah.

    Cricinfo informs me that Steve Waugh was out for a golden in his 150th, but Australia still went on to win.

    Writing's on the wall then

    cricinfo says the following too

    "Ricky Ponting's first ball duck was his fifth in Tests. Four of them have come in the last two years."

    Ponting will ton up in the next inning and you will know his name is the Lord, when he lays his vengeance upon them.
