The scoreboard is an idiot?

But it was just Bangladesh, you will say, when you reminisce about this innings five years from now. And when Ponting stops (I am guessing, at) 2 centuries less than Sachin at the end of his career, you will ask to take Sachin’s centuries (including this) against Bangadesh out of the equation.***

But.

But this is an innings of the top order. Not the best, but a very, very good knock.

*** Why is that needed, I ask? Ponting will remain a great, albeit someone who was never comfortable against off-spin, and comfortably shy of being a legend. Whatever the record books say, in my book, the three best Australian batsmen I have seen will always be Border, then Steve Waugh, and then Ponting.
