Rolled mud: Ponting slams "spinners" pitch (RPS)

Australia escaped their most serious spin challenge thanks to the wash-out where they shared the points with Sri Lanka on a pitch Ricky Ponting described as "basically rolled mud".

The hosts picked Muttiah Muralitharan, Ajantha Mendis and Rangana Herath, the first time all three had played together in an ODI, and Ponting knew the trio would be hard to counter.
