DON’T try telling these Indian fans that last night’s World Cup semi-final was just a game. One kid sliced his own tongue - and that’s not the worst of it.

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.

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

AUSTRALIA’S Aaron Baddeley is the talk of the US PGA Tour after a scarcely believable birdie made him clubhouse leader in the Texas Open.

CHAZ Mostert topped the opening V8 Supercars practice session at a soaking wet Symmons Plains circuit for the Tyrepower Tasmania SuperSprint.

Game On!

Some Aussie Rules action in the Game On area of the National Sports Museum.A new, bigger and better interactive hall and a sports cinema are now open at the National Sports Museum.

Game On is a new ‘hands, feet and bottoms-on’ area within the museum. 

It’s an extension of the original interactive gallery, but this time offering a larger range of sporting activities from cricket, football, bike racing, soccer and archery as well as a newspaper “sports-desk” interactive, multi-media screens and a comprehensive list of sporting world records.  

There is also a new netball interactive, designed to inspire young players with images of Australian netballers from the 2008 International Test Series. 

Visitors enter into the area via a portion of the actual running track from the 2006 Commonwealth Games and into a world of action - they can test their own goal kicking skills against AFL players, run out Adam Gilchrist on a virtual cricket pitch, test their hand-eye co-ordination and kick, throw, shoot, ride, race and run to their heart’s content. 

It’s the perfect place for kids (of all ages) to let off steam!
