Aus v Ind, 2nd semi-final, Sydney March 26, 2015

Smith and Australia quicks overwhelm India

ESPNcricinfo staff

Australia were playing their seventh semi-final; the previous six appearances ended in victories. India came into Sydney on the back of an 11-match unbeaten streak in the World Cup. The clash was expected to be closer than it turned out, as Steven Smith clattered a century to impose a target of 329. India's chase began well, but a bowling line-up of Mitchell Starc, Mitchell Johnson, Josh Hazlewood and James Faulkner kept the pressure up and sealed the biggest win in World Cup semi-final history.
