Curiously it was Ponting who both consoled and cajoled him, insisting that Krejza push for better explanations as to why he was not playing. Krejza, eager for more chances, decided he too would make a move - albeit to a Tasmania set-up that was flirting with grassy pitches and a seamer-heavy approach to winning Shield games.
