Ponting on defeat by Somerset

Via Cricinfo Australia:

“They played very well and we let them play very well,” said Ponting, for whom the humiliation came hot on the heels of their desperate defeat in the Twenty20 international at The Rose Bowl. “We’ll have out work cut out against Bangladesh the way we’re playing.”

But he refused to let his wry sense of humour desert him entirely, and added: “We got a lot more out of the game than if we’d got them out for 80,” a reference to their total of 79 against England on Monday. ” We’ll have a good long hard look at ourselves,” he concluded, “but it’s not the end of the world.”

He be rattled – enough to make a jibe against England bowling his side out for 79. This summer is going to be fun!
