"I went down and had a look at the wicket yesterday, it's rock hard like concrete and there's no grass on it," Ponting said.
Lee, Michael Clarke and Doug Bollinger were struggling with upset stomachs on Tuesday but are expected to be available for selection. Ponting has been impressed with Krejza, who he said had got better after going wicket-less and giving up 199 runs in a warm-up game before the first Test.
Australia are really under the pump now. Playing at a ground that none of the players have played on against a rampant home side in India is massively difficult.
Australia's bowling line-up has faltered this series. Krejza is a risk, but one that might have to be taken.
