Ahead of the first match, former captain Ricky Ponting had a piece of advice for the Australian team. He has asked the Australians to not let the Indian captain be a bully on the field and has asked the home team to have a strong body language against the opponent. “Well, he might. I don't necessarily believe that he is someone you shouldn't try to get under his skin. I have seen him rattled. Mitchell Johnson definitely rattled him a few times with some good hostile bowling and some good hostile body language around him. So, I would not sit back and let anyone bully," Ponting told cricket.com.au. Stay tuned with us for all the latest updates about India vs Australia 2018-19 Series!
