Sydney, Sep 29 (UNI) Cautioning Anil Kumble's men, Australia's assistant coach Greg Chappell said he can fore see skipper Ricky Ponting blitzkreig and adding more runs into his kitty in the four-Test series, starting from October 9.

''I can see a steely glint in his eye and I always worry when I see that in good players because that means there are a few runs around the corner,'' the former India coach was quoted as saying by the 'Sydney Morning Herald'.

''If I was the Indian team and I wanted to worry about something, I would worry about that. The only discussion we have had about it, in fact he (Ponting) was the one that initiated and made the comment that basically what he has to do is trust his method,'' he added.

Though Ponting has more than 10,000 Test runs under his belt, he has always struggled on the Indian pitches, averaging little over 12.

The upcoming Test series may prove to be a trendsetter for the batsman.
