India have Too Many Youngsters in Their Team: Ponting


Adelaide, Feb 18: Australian skipper Ricky Ponting felt the Indian side lacked experience as the hosts secured a 50-run victory in the tri-series one-dayer on Sunday.

"I guess a good balance of youth and experience is always welcome. In our teams, we try to have experience in important positions. This India hasn't got. They have a lot of talented youngsters but they are in a rebuilding phase as they would be in Tests soon," Ponting said in the post-match press conference here.

It did not stop the home captain from appealing to his batsmen to deliver the goods, which they have not done in the series so far.

"We have not been playing anywhere near our best. It's about the time batters did so. We have been winning and getting bonus points and if our batters hit the straps, we would be very difficult to beat."
