Ponting urges his players to keep their cool

The Australia cricket captain Ricky Ponting is urging his players to keep their cool in tomorrow's second one day international New Zealand in Auckland.

The Australian fast bowler Mitchell Johnson and New Zealand's Scott Styris, were both fined following a head butting incident during the Black Caps win, in the opening one dayer in Napier.

Allrounder Shane Watson says Ponting has talked to the side about being competitive but not overstepping the mark.

Tomorrow's match is a sellout with about 12,000 fans expected at Eden Park, which has a reduced capacity while it'sbeing rebuilt for next year's Rugby World Cup.
