What happened when India faced Australia in the group stage?
India won by six wickets for the first of 10 straight victories the hosts have achieved in this World Cup – although the triumph was not completely straightforward with Rohit Sharma’s side initially slipping to 2-3 in a chase of 200 in Chennai.
Rohit, Ishan Kishan and Shreyas Iyer were all dismissed for ducks before Virat Kohli (85) and KL Rahul (97no) revived the innings with a fourth-wicket stand of 165 and India prevailed in 41.2 overs.
Ravindra Jadeja had earlier bagged 3-28 as Australia were rolled for 199 in 49.3 overs with David Warner (46) and Steve Smith (41) the highest-scoring batters.
What happened in the semi-finals?
India defeated New Zealand by 70 runs, piling on 397-4 as Kohli scored a record 50th ODI hundred, eclipsing Sachin Tendulkar’s tally of 49, before Mohammed Shami took seven wickets to help dismiss the Black Caps for 327.
Australia squeezed past South Africa by three wickets, with Pat Cummins (14no) and Mitchell Starc (16no) taking their side to their target of 213 – and a seventh straight victory in this year’s tournament – after a nervy run chase.
