Ponting's epic helped the Aussies put a score of 556 on the board but the inspired Indian team, led by Rahul Dravid's 233, ran their opponents close by piling on 523 runs in their first innings.
In the Australian 2nd innings, Ricky Ponting struggled around for 17 balls before being dismissed for a duck by Ajit Agarkar.
