328/7 Became A big Ask for India to Chase
SYDNEY: Steve Smith's sublime century laid the groundwork and Australia's pace bowlers finished the job to send the co-hosts storming into a seventh World Cup final with a 95-run victory over champions India on Thursday.
Australia move on to the Melbourne Cricket Ground and a shot at a fifth title against New Zealand on Sunday, while India head home after four months Down Under having come up short in their bid to retain the title they won four years ago.
Australia won the toss and chose to bat putting a score of 328/7 on the board which India was unable to chase.
Australia has won seven of the ten World Cup matches it has played against India, but the Asian side came out ahead most recently in 2011 but not in 2015.
