    First, I don't give a crap if you call me misinformed or whatever else but do not generalize. This is an official warning.

    Second, the crazy reason was that he sucked at it. Apparantely, having to perform well before being successful only applies to Sehwag in South Africa.

    Ikki was right for the second, but yeah not the first.

    Either way, aussie now knows that

    we're does not = where

    and

    were does not = where.

    Firstly its unfortunate that i have to generalize, but thats what i've seen. Since i've been on CW over the years @ least, a stready drumbeat from pretty much every Indian fan on this site. Along with most i know in England before the recent AUS vs India series that still had some doubts for alot of crazy reasons about Ponting ability to play spin.

    Secondly yes its clear he sucked. After years of people claming due that Ponting can't be rated highly as great batsman unless he scored a hundred in India. He scored a hundred in 2008 & he sucked. The logic is very strong here.

    So Ponting pretty much corrected his faults in India in 2008 which caused him to average sub 20 in India. Something Sehwag has to do in SA given he averaged 14 in his last series in that country in 2006/07.

    So by your standard, if Sehwag scores 100 in SA he can play pace bowling right?

    Because Ponting scored a ton in a drawn test match where no result was likely by the end of day 4. So if Sehwag scores 100 in a draw, he's still all good.

    Anyway I don't think people said Ponting couldn't play spin. He just had a bad record in India, which he needed to rectify. He went a long way to improving that in 2008, but it still wasn't that good. 2010 was very good.
