We are really disappointed at the moment and I'm sure that will hang around a little while to tell you the truth. Hopefully not too many of those mental scars hang around this week. We've got to try and forget what's happened today as quick as we can. South Africa can obviously gain a lot from that. They'll still have quite a few of this squad in their Test squad. There's a pretty short turnaround until the Test match and we've got to get away and work hard.I think this is perhaps the first admission of low morale and being psyched by the opposition by an Australian captain. I never thought I'd see Australian captains use words like 'mental scars' etc. in a context other than pre-series punches. Ponting didn't say anything of that sort when England thrashed Australia in the Twenty20 game before the Ashes started.
