Then, through all the white noise and static and steely screech of alienation comes something else: the sound of Harbhajan Singh.
'Ponting is a very average captain and an average player too. I can get Ponting out any time. Even when I come post a six-month lay off. He got a hundred in Bangalore but I don't think that's enough. He needs to come back and score some more before he can claim to be a complete batsman. He needs to go and learn to bat against spin bowling.'
Somehow the word 'average' really does its work here.
