 Ricky Ponting - “I was furious at a player being so disrespectful to himself, his teammates, his opponents and his country by turning up to play a game in that state, and I blurted out, 'He can go home then' to Gilchrist before heading off to speak to (coach) John Buchanan.”
 Ricky Ponting - “We had a few communication mix ups and it cost us. Two of our first three wickets were run outs and we were on the back foot for most of our innings. Sri Lanka played a very good game though - they batted well and put us under pressure.”
 Ricky Ponting - “Right from early on I felt pretty much in control but I might have got a bit tired not having batted for a long time for a while.”
 Ricky Ponting - “Brett is like he is because of his pace. If he drops back he becomes easier to hit so we addressed that last night. It's a confidence thing and about understanding the way he has to bowl.

 Ricky Ponting - “It is always a concern,”
 Ricky Ponting - “A few of our guys in the side knew him a lot better than I did, Shane Warne being one of those. Shane was a pretty close friend of Kerry's, so it's an extremely sad day and it's a huge loss for the cricket community.”
 Ricky Ponting - “He said 'Let them all in', and at the end of that night my wife Daphne and I went up to the committee room and we walked across and raised a glass, because it was one of the great moments in our lives to that time and it remains as such.”
 Ricky Ponting - “It was a little bit of a thing we had to clear up from today. It wasn't an incident. There were a few words spoken on the ground that I wanted to clarify.”
 Ricky Ponting - “As this series goes on, it would be pretty hard to chase runs. So hopefully, I'll win a few tosses.”
 Ricky Ponting - “When we get those sorts of totals we're always going to be hard to chase down.”
 Ricky Ponting - “I couldn't care about my own hundred, it was all about winning the series. It was a great wicket, but there was no way they should have scored as many runs as they did.”
 Ricky Ponting - “We did everything in our power to play the game in the right spirit. I don't know if he's trying to cover his own backside with a lot of these allegations directed at us now. It's all coming after some allegations were made against him about the way England conducted themselves. To be honest, I don't really care.”
 Ricky Ponting - “I am sure the exposure they have had against some top teams would have helped them but we don't want to bother about what they are capable of and want to focus on what we can do.”
 Ricky Ponting - “This match is another example that the team is capable of coming out of any trouble. It was a very, very good test match.”
 Ricky Ponting - “We have been behind in series before, and we will simply remain calm and bring out some more good cricket to try and turn things around.”
 Ricky Ponting - “Unfortunately for Jason he hasn't been at his best and we thought a slight change of personnel could be of benefit for us. He could still have a role to play in the tour.”
 Ricky Ponting - “I think he's probably had a good look at his game and had a look at how he got out in Australia, and tried to rectify that. It's up to us to come back with something different. We've spoken about him and we know what we want to do.”

 Ricky Ponting - “As we've seen, he's been the outstanding one-day domestic player for this season, and probably for the last two seasons in Australia.”
 Ricky Ponting - “We've been in this sort of situation before in series. We lost the first final of the VB Series a few weeks ago (against Sri Lanka in Australia) and won the next two.”
 Ricky Ponting - “England, chasing 129 for victory after making Australia follow-on for the first time in 17 years, almost failed to get home with Shane Warne taking 4 for 31. As I have seen over the last two days of this game, a lot of that fight is there but just not for long enough, ... If we want to win Test matches, it has to be over the four days, we have to be at our best for four days.”
 Ricky Ponting - “I couldn't help thinking during the past two Tests that it's been very rare that we've been well and truly outplayed for the majority of two matches in a row and found ourselves under pressure for long periods. And basically suffering what other teams normally face against us. It's almost as if we've become those opposition teams, and England has suddenly become Australia.”
