Headache: Seething Ponting hit with fast bouncer

Ricky Ponting was seething by Alastair Cook's failure to take his word over a disputed catch.

The pair exchanged heated words before Ponting and England captain Andrew Strauss had a stink of their own. Ponting was then hit on the head by a quick bouncer from Finn giving the skipper a massive headache after losing momentum to England after taking the upper hand.

The series-opening Ashes cricket Test in Brisbane ended in a draw as Australia reached 107-1 in the final session on day five, having been set 297 for victory.

1st Test, Day 5 Gabba, Nov 2010.
