Ponting's practice far from perfect
Former Australian captain Ricky Ponting took part in a Hobart Hurricanes Twenty20 practice match at Anzac Park, Lindisfarne, but was unable to snap his lean streak with the bat.
Opening. Ponting made five from nine deliveries.
He played one trademark pull for four before Ben Hilfenhaus had him caught at third man top edging an attempted cut shot.
The side's first Big Bash League game takes place against Perth on Sunday.
