List the files in directory

hi,
i have so many files in my directory. for example
HTML Code:
$: ls
abc.12
abc.23
abc.45
abc.56
abc.123
abc.343
abc.567
abc.345 like this.
from this list, how to display only the files which ends with two numbers. If i give abc.*, it displays all the files.
# 2  
Code:
ls *.[0-9][0-9]

# 3  
or
Code:
ls *.??

question marks are replaced by a character that is an actual value. So not a blank.

although this would pick up alpha characters as well not just numeric so neutron's would be the way to do it if you have mixed endings and only wanted the numerical endings. From your output, you dont have any alpha endings so if you are repeatedly typing this command its quicker my way.
