"The partnership between Ishant an Laxman was great and it made the difference I guess. Bollinger's injury probably didn't help us there; we needed a fresh bowler to give it a shake but that's the game," he added.

He, however, did not forget praise team member. "We tried our best. It was satisfying effort from the boys. I told them to just take out the scorecard out of the mind," Ponting said.
