Ponting was pretty ****ty tbh.
EDIT: Think it's the "once again" thing he's worried about.

Ponting 1 only thing he did right was win the toss
Clarke 6 Gutsy 2nd innings knock under pressure
Hussey 7 Looks in prime form though threw it away on last day.
North 2 Surely his last match?
Haddin 5 batting very well but dropped a dolly
Harris 5 Pick of bowlers, not saying much though. King pair
Doherty 1 Not good enough
Siddle 2 Bowled utter garbage
Bollinger 1 So much hype so little delivery
Strauss 3 All for the captaincy though
Cook 9 Looks in form of his life and is cashing in on it
Trott 7 Scored well again and important run out on day 1
Pietersen 10 Brilliant double ton and massive wicket
Collingwood 4 Gave it away when set
Bell 7 Looks most in form England player, shame he hasn't been needed yet.
Prior 4 Decent cameo but dropped Hussey, luckily it didn't matter.
Broad 5 bowled better than figures suggest before injury
Swann 9 Who says finger spinners can't perform in Australia?
Anderson 8 Brilliant opening burst set up win
Finn 7 Keeps on picking up wickets despite all the criticism,i guess the convicts aren't watching their own bowlers bowl ****e.
Katich - 4: Freak dismissal in the first innings, failed to convert a start in the second.
Watson - 6: Solid performance. Not really match-turning though.
Ponting - 2: Horrible performance with the bat, uninspiring as a captain, though not much he could've done.
Clarke - 5: Fought hard in the second innings in a difficult situation. Ultimately failed again.
Hussey - 7: Australia's best batsman. Loses points for his atrocious shot in the second dig.
North - 2: Not much more can be said. Expected performance from North.
Haddin - 4: Scored a 50 on a flat deck, then failed with the gloves and failed in the second innings, though he got a genuine good ball.
Harris - 4: Probably the most encouraging Australian bowler, though that really doesn't say much. Kingpair coming in at no 8 is pretty awful.
Doherty - 1: Tempted to say zero. Felt sorry for him, clearly not a test bowler.
Siddle - 2: Toothless performance.
Bollinger - 2: Same as Siddle.
Strauss - 5: failed with the bat, but led England to their first live win on Australian soil in years.
Cook - 9: Chanceless hundred basically, thought he actually batted better than in the last game.
Trott - 7.5: Edgy innings, displayed a clear weakness to the short ball but still made runs. Got a vital runout.
Pieterson - 10: Peerless performance in every capacity.
Collingwood - 5: Average performance really, though didn't really do anything wrong.
Bell - 7: To me still looks arguably the best England batsman. Didn't get a chance to show much.
Prior - 6: Solid stuff
Broad - 4: Not great. Took one wicket and got injured.
Swann - 8: Bowled well in the first and beautifully in the second.
Anderson - 8: Brilliant performance in the first innings on a flat pitch.
Finn - 5: Showed some promise, also some vulnerability.
