Aussies 'biggest mental battle' in Adelaide Test, says Ricky Ponting

London: Former Australian captain Ricky Ponting believes that the first Test against India would be the biggest mental battle for the Australians following the tragic demise of late cricketer Phillip Hughes.

None of the things that have happened before compare to what the players are dealing with after Phillip's death, adding that he has complete faith in the team to perform well, wrote Ponting in The Australian newspaper.

Ponting believes that cricket at the highest level is a job that has to be played regardless of what is going on in one's own life, adding that just like everyone else, cricketers too have to show up at work when things are rough, Sport24 reported.

Australia will play the first Test match against India in Adelaide from Tuesday.
