Speedster Sreesanth's on-field aggression has come in for praise from Australian skipper Ricky Ponting, who said his team was looking to "impose" itself on India in the one-day series with a similar behaviour.

"I know it (Sreesanth's aggression) is going to be there. That's what fast bowling is all about. I expect all the guys in our side to play with lot of aggression and (be) very positive with the way they go about things," Ponting said.

"We expected it from him (Sreesanth)," he said, adding, he had been watching the bowler in the past couple of years.

Ponting said that Sreesanth did a good job for India in the Twenty20 World Cup and remarked that "body language" displayed by the bowler at times on the field is something that is needed sometimes in the game.

"We will come out as aggressively as we possibly can in this series and impose ourselves on the Indians. If we do that, I am sure we will go a long way in winning the series," he said.

Ponting also said cricket was generally all about putting pressure on the opposition. "That's what we try to do all the time".
