Melbourne: Former Australia captain Ricky Ponting indicated on Wednesday that he has no intentions of hanging up his boots after the Test series against India.
Ponting, third all-time highest run getter in Tests after Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid, struck a defiant 60 to add to his first innings 62.
"It's my job to be a consistent run-scorer for Australia and do my best to win games of cricket for Australia. If I feel like I've got some support in the dressing room that's all that really matters to me. I want to do the best that I can to get this Australian cricket team back to a bit higher ranked than we are at the moment," he said.
