They gave it their all, and came in all guns blazing, but it was not to be.

On Thursday, February 15, it was the beginning and ending of the match which hurt India the most. Blake Govers gave Australia a 2-0 lead in just the second minute. The Indian men then changed the complexion of the clash in a space of 17 minutes, with two penalty corner conversions from captain Harmanpreet Singh and field goals from Sukhjeet and Mandeep.

They led 4-2, with a quarter and change to go. But the Aussies turned the tables, and how. After India hit four goals in quick succession, Australia found four goals of their own to go from 2-4 down to 6-4, and won the match in thrilling fashion to complete a hat-trick of victories at the FIH Pro League 2023-24 in Bhubaneswar. Aran Zalewski, Lachlan Sharp, Jacob Anderson and Jack Welch sounded the board for the visitors in the second half.

Nevertheless, Craig Fulton's side will take heart from the way they fought, and gear up for the next challenge against Ireland, lined up the very next day. Playing another match, less than 24 hours after such a high-octane encounter will be tough. But this Indian side prides itself on its fitness and will seek to leverage that on Friday.
