Former Australia skipper Ricky Ponting said on Sunday that he doesn’t see India make even 200 runs in the second innings of the running third Test against Australia at the Sydney Cricket Ground. Ponting answered questions from 7Cricket’s Twitter handle and he answered a question from a fan who asked what would be the good score for Australia to explain?


Ponting replied to this question: “At the moment 310 for, but I really don’t think India will make 200 in the second innings.”

During the session, Ponting also said he found it difficult to face Anil Kumble and Harbhajan Singh.


On the third day of the ongoing Pink Test, Australia threw India away for 244 in the first innings when Pat Cummins took four wickets. As a result, the hosts took a 94-run first innings lead.

Half centuries behind Steve Smith (81), Marnus Labuschagne (73) and Cameron Green (84), Australia declared their second innings at 312/6, setting a goal of 407 points for India to win the third Test match.
