Nothing seems to be going right for the Indian women’s hockey team right now, as they seem stuck in a holding pattern of missed penalty corner conversions and losses. Having been vanquished in four out of the five FIH Pro League 2023-24 games they've played so far, Savita Punia and Co now take on Australia again in their return fixture in Rourkela on Saturday, February 17.

The Women In Blue have found the going tough at the tournament thus far. After suffering a 1-2 defeat in their first match against China, the Indian women’s hockey team went on to lose 1-3 to the Netherlands and 0-3 to Australia before beating the United States 3-1 in their final match of the Bhubaneswar leg.

In their first match of the Rourkela leg, India took the lead early in the game but China came back strongly to win the game 2-1. India then went on to lose 0-1 to the Netherlands.

Speaking ahead of the match against Australia, captain Savita said, “We lost the last encounter against Australia but we are focused on securing the win this time and we will give our one hundred percent. Australia plays a similar style to us, they are exceptional at transferring their balls and their finishing is top notch but we will aim to nullify this and win our one-on-one battles. We are as good as any team playing this tournament so we will give it our all when we step out on the field as these are crucial matches for us.”

Head-To-Head Record

Australia have had more favourable results in the recent past against India, including the 3-0 win in the Bhubaneswar leg of the FIH Hockey Pro League 2023-24 earlier this month. But the Indian team will look to replicate their 1-0 win over Australia in the 2020 Olympics quarter-final when they take them on at Rourkela on Saturday night.
