Surely, this is an indication that the Australian's have been bested.
"I think really for us it's just about getting our heads right," he said.
"I think even a couple of guys today would be disappointed with the shots they got out on at pretty vital times, so we just have to get our thinking right.
"I'm pretty happy with where our skills are at, it's just making sure that we're mentally right in the right moments."
Ponting accepts that the Australian's are 'mentally' not there. Otherwise why should he mention these words, 'our heads right', 'thinking right' and the clincher 'mentally right'.
Have the Australian's succumbed to 'mental disintegration'?
