Ponting, Watson send England home


“Our batsmen were to blame on a wicket where we should have been looking at scoring at least 300 runs. Shane Watson and Ricky Ponting played magnificently well and they did a thoroughly professional job on us.” Strauss

“Ricky really helped me a lot throughout my innings, especially in the middle period, so to have him there getting me through that period was excellent.” Watson

“We can take some confidence out of that for when we go to the final on Monday.” Ponting
