Ponting's innings highest for Aus against India

Last updated on: December 13, 2003 13:11 IST

Ponting's 242 is the highest individual innings by an Australian against India in all matches – home or away. He surpassed fellow teammate Justin Langer's 223 at Sydney in the 1999-00 series. Ponting also bettered his previous highest Test score of 206 against West Indies at Port-of-Spain early this year.

Ponting's innings is also the seventh joint highest played against India and 14th joint highest innings played by an Australian in all Tests.
