Ricky Ponting is closing in on 200. If he can get twenty-five more runs, he would become only the eighth batsman to score two double-centuries in the same series. And, as the Nine commentators just mentioned, he’d be only the fifth to reach 200 in consecutive Tests, after South Africa’s Graeme Smith.

UPDATE. Got it.
