Evaluating the team's performance so far, India head coach Craig Fulton said, "It's been a good performance so far from the team, but there's a lot to improve, and we are trying to make the most out of these matches. Playing back-to-back matches against top teams is always tough, but we got a good break to recover and now the focus is on the last two games of the Bhubaneswar leg."

Australia, too, are coming into the match with back-to-back wins in Bhubaneswar. They began their campaign with a 4-3 victory against Spain and then thrashed Ireland 5-0 in their second match.

Head-To-Head Record

The last time India and Australia took each other on was during the previous edition of the FIH Hockey Pro League in Rourkela. It was India that got the better of the Aussies then, having registered a 5-4 win and a 2-2 (4-3 SO) shootout win in the two-legged tie.

Fulton added, "It is surely going to be a tough match. They are coming off solid back-to-back wins. For us, there were a few learnings from the first two games, and our focus will be to improve and better our performance. We are up for the challenge and look to keep the momentum going."

After the game against Australia, India will face Ireland in their last match of the Bhubaneswar leg on Friday, before moving to Rourkela for the return fixtures.
