Overall Australia only lost the wicket of Ponting who made 134 runs and announced his return into form and Clarke punished the hapless Indian bowling to notch up his first double hundred of his career, What made this double century special for Clarke was that he scored this double century on his homeground – Sydney Cricket Ground in front of 30,000 people and this is his first double hundred as Australian Captain as well.
The Indian bowlers struggled and only Ishant was successful in getting Ponting dismissed when the Australian score was 325 and overall Zaheer Khan, Ishant Sharma and Ashwin were guilty of conceeding more than 100 runs each in their respective spells.
