AB de Villiers wary of record-chasing Australians

"We haven't ruined his (Ponting's) last Test match yet, but hopefully we do." AB De Villiers said the WACA pitch was still a good batting wicket, but he expected that to change over the last two days of the match. "It is playing quite well," he said of the pitch.
