Melbourne: Former Australia captain Ricky Ponting feels that the year-end home series against India will not only be a keen contest but would also be a lot different as compared to when the Indian team plays any other opponent.
"I think they're a lot different when they play us and (Mahendra Singh) Dhoni himself has made that pretty clear. He says he's a walker against everybody except Australia. We'll wait and see how they go out here," Ponting told 'Daily Telegraph'.
Ponting also believes that the contest against India, which is always one of the biggest and most volatile clashes, will be no different this time around as well. "It will be a good contest. Every contest we've had against them for 10 years has been a good contest, whether it was Twenty20, One-day or a Test match, it's been great cricket," said Ponting.
