Although the Indian 'Fab Four' of Ganguly, Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid and VVS Laxman came a cropper in the Test series in Sri Lanka, Ponting did not read too much into it.
"Every series is a different one. You can go through one series not doing very well but in the start of the next series, you can start off and make a big score and suddenly you are back on track again. That is what cricket is all about. Things can change so quickly in the game," Austalia captain told a private TV channel in Dubai.
"But one thing I have noticed is that Ganguly hasn't been named in the initial squad and that I think is going to be interesting for me during the tour," said Ponting, recovering from a wrist surgery.
Ganguly has been a thorn in the flesh for Australia since his captaincy days and the left-hander often rubbed them the wrong way with his nonchalance. Ponting, meanwhile, predicted that it would be a re-building phase for the India team over the next 12 months.
