There's a bit of debate going on as to whether Ponting should come in at number three or number four.
As an Australian I'm not too bothered - as long as he keeps scoring the runs.
Ponting plays his shots from the word go and once he gets going he is a handful.
He has struggled on occasions - the start of the last Ashes series being a case in point - but on the greater part he is fantastic at three… or should that be four?
