Lanka look to punt The Punter

In American Football a Punt is A kick in which the ball is dropped from the hands and kicked before it touches the ground. From the look of things India and Sri Lanka prepare to kick ponting out of the game on his way down..

Sri Lanka's captain Mahela Jayawardene has laid down a marker for Friday's match in Perth after vowing to target Australian frailties - and Ricky Ponting in particular - as they bid to top the table. A win for Sri Lanka would see them top of the standings, relegating the world champions Australia to bottom. - Cricinfo

This summer both Sri Lanka and India contributed greatly to Ponting's demise as the world's no.1 ranked batsman. Murali thoroughly exposed him during the 2 match test series in Nov/Dec 2007 and now the Indian's have ensured his batting continues to slump. The Indians also managed to change public opinion of Ponting's captaincy and his captaincy tactics. For some he can no longer be considered Australia's finest captain his brash and uncouth mannerisms were severely exposed to all in recent times.
