He's nursing a left elbow injury, after he was hit while batting during last week's third Test against the West Indies in Perth.

Ponting only fielded at the side's practice today at the MCG and will bat in the nets tomorrow,.

Pace bowler Peter Siddle is playing for Victoria today as he tries to confirm he has recovered from a hamstring strain.
