Zaheer-Pointing is under pressure

Indian fast bowler Zaheer Khan believes Ricky Ponting's poor batting record in India is affecting the Australian captain's confidence.Ponting is one of the 7 batsmen who have scored more than 10,000 Test runs. But averages just 12.28 in eight Tests in India. Ponting last week said "India start as favorites because they have more experienced players and Australia, the world's top-ranked side, are the underdogs". Zaheer told a news channel on Thursday "I was actually surprised by the statement made by him, for a captain who is leading the number one test side to say something like that definitely shows that there is a lot of pressure on him getting into the series".He also added that "The reason can be that he hasn't scored many runs in India. That should definitely work to the advantage of us".
