Ricky Ponting might have the captaincy back, albeit temporarily, but what he really needs is runs. So far in this series Ponting has made 2, 1, 6 and 2, and the slump is all the more baffling considering his excellent form in the Test series against India. It is the third time in his career he has had four consecutive single-figure scores in ODIs. None of those lean trots have stretched out to five innings – yet. Gautam Gambhir has scored a 92 and a 91 so far in this series but is yet to turn one of those into a hundred. It is now 14 months since Gambhir has scored a century in any format for India, but they would be more than happy with another 90 against Australia.
This tri-series has suddenly become interesting. Sri Lanka’s bonus-point win over Australia in Sydney on Friday means that at the halfway stage of the tournament, only three points separate the three teams. Australia now find themselves without their regular captain and needing a victory to regain the top spot on the Commonwealth Bank Series table. Their loss to Sri Lanka was comprehensive, and the batsmen need to lift after they slipped to 8 for 104 on Friday. David Warner is yet to fire in this series and a big innings from him would be a major boost for the team, while Ricky Ponting has also been disappointing, and too much has been asked of David Hussey in the lower middle order. In the field they have been sloppy, in Ponting’s own words, and they need to sharpen up in the second half of the series.
India have started to find their groove in the shorter format after a miserable Test tour. Their last match was a tie with Sri Lanka but that followed two victories and notably, the senior top-order batsmen Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag are yet to impose themselves on the series. That means there is plenty of room for India to improve further. And they can take encouragement from the venue: they have won their past two one-day internationals against Australia at the Gabba. However, Australia haven’t been beaten in Brisbane since that last loss to India, in March 2008.
