PLAYER RATINGS: Dave Warner’s battles continued, while Steve Smith was perfect. See who starred and who struggled in the semi against India.

    THERE was hope for India for as long as MS Dhoni was still at the crease, but in the semi-final of the World Cup the Indian skipper simply gave up.

    DAVID Gallop reflects on the state of Australian soccer during a trip to Germany to see the Socceroos’ epic draw with the World Cup champions.

    STEVE Smith’s graceful 105 off 93 in the World Cup semi-final at the SCG continued his almost unprecedented level of dominance against India.

    TRAINER Kris Lees believes the weight-for-age racing in Sydney this autumn is the strongest he has seen in years.
