Australian skipper Ricky Ponting said he is devastated as India ended Australia's remarkable 12-year reign as World Cup champions with a five-wicket win in the quarterfinals in Gujarat on Thursday. Addressing a post-match news conference in Ahmedabad, Ponting said that he had great expectations from his side. Chasing 261 for victory, India fumbled and faltered but half-centuries from Sachin Tendulkar (53), Gautam Gambhir (50) and Yuvraj Singh (57 not out) eventually helped them to overwhelm the target with 14 balls to spare and set up a much-awaited semi-final with Pakistan.
