The New Zealand cricketer Kyle Mills says the Australian captain is showing signs of the strain as Ricky Ponting's side reel from a test and one day series defeat by South Africa.

The New Zealand team has headed to Australia to prepare for the start of the Chappell-Hadlee one day series which begins on Sunday in Perth.

Mills says Australia aren't living well with their number one status being threatened.
