Ponting's average in India(19.50) is pretty poor. Out of his 16 innings in India, he was able to cross 20 only twice.
First,in the recent test match of Boder-Gavaskar Trophy 2008 where he scored a century in his first innings. It was also his first test century in India.
Second, in the 2nd test match of Border-Gavaskar Trophy 1998 where he scored 60 in his first innings.
Ponting was dismissed by the indian spinners 14 times out of 16 innings in India. Harbhajan got him 6 times, kumble 4 times, Venkatapati Raju 2 times, Murali Karthik and Ashish Kapoor once each. Playing spinners in India has been a problem for him. But the way he played them in the first test when he scored a century is excellent. He broke the shackles with a wonderful century on the first day of the test match. After 12 years of waiting he finally managed to score a century in India. Hope he continues his form and improves his records in India.
