Ponting fails in final Test

A fairy tale finish for Ricky Ponting did not eventuate in the first innings of the Second Test at the WACA, with the retiring great dismissed for just four.

The man from Mowbray was out LBW to Vernon Philander for four off seven balls.

A short time ago Australia was in a world of trouble at 6-56 chasing South Africa's first innings of 225.
