Virat Kohli and co caught short as India fail to banish ghost of World Cups past | Dileep Premachandran

www.guardian.co.uk - Having shone in previous rounds, India’s stars faded under the lights of the SCG as they limped out of the Cricket World Cup to Australia Read Vic Marks’s match report from the SCG Russell Jackson: Steve Smith lets his bat do the talkingAn India World Cup campaign underpinned by ruthlessness and adventure ended with the ashen taste of defeat at the Sydney Cricket Ground, in front of a crowd who had made this most historic of Australian venues seem like Little India. They had already lost three times to Australia this southern summer - two Tests and a Tri Series ODI - but this was the deepest cut of all, the one that saw them surrender the trophy they had won amid such euphoria in Mumbai four years ago.The identity of the main tormenters should perhaps have come as no surprise. Steven Smith hit four centuries against India in the four-Test series and his beautifully constructed 93-ball 105 was reminiscent of Ricky Ponting’s demolition job in the 2003 final at the Wanderers in Johannesburg. Then, after a stutter that saw them lose three for 16 in 29 balls, Mitchell Johnson - whose all-round excellence had transformed the Brisbane Test in December - smacked 27 from nine balls to stretch the target to unrealistic proportions.
