Australia have defeated India in what was a crucial game for India.A victory here for India here would have ensured their qualification to the finals.Australia won the toss and got of to a blistering start though they lost Adam Gilchrist quickly.Ricky Ponting scored a brilliant 124 and was aided by Hayden and Symonds who compiled half centuries apiece.Ponting hit seven fours and a six in a enterprising 132 balls knock and this was a courageous innings by the Aussie captain who had been badly out of form.In their reply India scored 299 runs and they were aided by a tremendous 113 by the Delhi youngster Gambhir and also a vital 51 by Robin Uthappa.Tendulkar failed again and hs form is needed should India enter the finals.Anyway one wishes India all the best against Srilanka at Hobart.
