The Australian juggernaut rolls on:

The combination of India and Champions Trophy has been a nightmare for Australia twice in the past, but Ricky Ponting and co. finally ended that jinx, thrashing India by six wickets to emphatically move into the semi-finals of the tournament.

Bad news for the Asian subcontinent:

India, meanwhile, followed Sri Lanka and Pakistan in exiting the tournament, making it the first time since the 1975 World Cup that no team from the subcontinent has made it to the semi-finals of a major one-day championship.

Ouch. The next World Cup is less than six months away.

Actually this was more of India playing utterly bad than Australia playing great. The bowlers were pathetic and the batting was stagnating when it should have accelerated, even though there was no real bowling threat.. Sad. Real Sad.

I'm betting on the resurgent west-indies to do what they did the last time around.
