Cricket-Faulkner confident Australia can finish off India

SYDNEY, March 23 (Reuters) – James Faulkner has built a reputation as Australia’s best finisher, the man who can always be relied on to get the team across the line in a tight finish.

Faulkner hasn’t done that so far in the World Cup. Injured just before the tournament started, he missed Australia’s first three matches and has been slowly working his way back to full fitness.

Rohit century puts India in control against Bangladesh

MELBOURNE (Reuters) – Rohit Sharma, aided by a contentious decision that gave him a second life, scored his first World Cup hundred on Thursday to help the defending world champions India post a daunting total of 302 for six in their quarter-final against Bangladesh.

Rohit was caught in the deep when he was on 90 but was allowed to keep batting when the umpires ruled that Rubel Hossain’s delivery was above waist-height and therefore a no-ball, although television replays suggested it was a fair delivery.
