Australia captain Ricky Ponting will be charged on Wednesday after allegedly damaging a television in the dressing room during a World Cup match with Zimbabwe.

An International Cricket Council (ICC) spokesman would only confim: Ricky Ponting is being charged ... there will be a charge.

He said the governing body were waiting for the Australian team to arrive in Nagpur later on Wednesday for their next match there against New Zealand to inform Ponting.

We need to talk to him ... because we don't know what he's going to say to it, the spokesman said.

Earlier, the ICC told Reuters that it had received a report on the incident from the Indian cricket board after it was sent to them by the Gujarat Cricket Association which oversees the sport in Ahmedabad where Monday's game took place.
