India faces Australia after a long time..

The Second Semifinal of International Twenty20 World Cup, India v/s Australia, has all the ingredients to be an exciting match. India has put up an interesting show at World Cup so far. The team that arrived as underdogs has now become one of the favourites, and the fact that they sent one of the favourites in the tournament back packing their bags. On the other hand, the world champions started on a lower note losing to minnows but came back strongly to reach the Semis.

Importantly, it must be noted that India would be facing Australia after a long period of around 11 months (328 days). (FYI: Last time the two teams played was on 29 October 2006 when Australia chased a target of 250 with 26 balls remaining and 6 wickets in hand at Mohali.) Also, it has been observed that in each match they play against each other, one of the two teams substantially outperform their normal performances whether it be India stopping successful wins record of Australia or Australia thrashed India in the ODI World Cup 2003 finals.

Lets see what is in store for today!!
