India defeat holders Australia

CRICKET: India will face Pakistan in an eagerly anticipated World Cup semi-final after knocking reigning champions Australia out yesterday. Yuvraj Singh’s 57 not out helped India to a five-wicket victory in Ahmedabad, despite Ricky Ponting’s first century for 13 months. Sachin Tendulkar (53) and Gautam Gambhir (50) also made key contributions with the bat as the home side reached their target of 261 with 14 balls to spare.
