Definitely nothing to do with their talent!

Amazing what a difference a venue makes.
Ashton Agar bowling:
-Sydney: 3/6 off 4 overs
-Perth: 1/39 off 4 overs
Ponting was poopooing the Sydney venue because of the benefit it gave the spin bowlers (isn't that how cricket works?) but then these days I just naturally expect criticism towards something every time Ponting opens his mouth.

Even Sydney isn't the spinners' paradise it once was (remember Allan Border getting 11 wickets in a Test there?).

I saw some of the spin happening during the match at the Sydney showground venue the other night (Ponting was very critical of it but then the only time he's not criticising something on air is when he's not in the commentary box).
