Ricky Ponting returns as Australia's captain for the fourth and final Test against India here from Wednedsay determined not to show the beleaguered hosts any mercy.

The tourists have already clinched their first series on Indian soil since 1969 after winning two of the three Tests which Ponting missed due to a broken thumb.

The Tasmanian, who will take over from stand-in captain Adam Gilchrist for the last Test at the Wankhede stadium here, will settle for nothing less than a 3-0 scoreline to end the tour in style.

"We have been on the receiving end here a few times, and I think the guys will be keen to finish off the series how we started," Ponting told reporters on Monday.

"I don't think our performance will slip."
