Sultan Azlan Shah Cup hockey: India aim for improved show against Australia

Sultan Azlan Shah Cup hockey: India aim for improved show against Australia

India forced a wealth of penalty corners throughout the match and two of them were converted by drag-flick specialist Harmanpreet Singh either side of halftime.

However, once, Tom Craig put the Aussies in front by the 11th minute, the Malaysia squad under coach Stephen Van Huizen crumbled under pressure, allowing another two goals in the 23rd and 27th minutes, scored by Trent Mitton before Craig made it 4-1 in the 38th minute. But Sreejesh denied dragger Sam Lane's well-executed flick.

India were awarded their first penalty corner when Pradeep Mor's diagonal ball landed on a defender's foot in the circle. "That's what they have to go through and hopefully won't make those errors again", he said.

The Black Sticks' hope of coming back into the game in the third quarter was dented with a strong defensive structure showcased by India.

Oltmans not happy with India's performance INDIA'S hockey coach Roelant Oltmans is unhappy that his strikers created very few scoring opportunities in the 2-2 draw against Great Britain.

He picked up the ball with precision and sent it high up giving no chance for the New Zealand keeper to save it. The team nearly immediately won another PC but Harmanpreet Singh's attempt to get his hat-trick went amiss as his flick was slightly wide.

India's lead was short-lived as the determined British made the most of their 52nd minute attack even in a crowded circle. The learning has been swift, as shown by India recovering from two soft goals conceded after taking the lead against Britain and then maintaining a clean sheet against a talented New Zealand team.

Harmanpreet rounded off the scoring with another penalty corner conversion, this time sending a soaring drag-flick into the top corner of the net in the 47th minute.

India are scheduled to play four of their five round- robin league matches in the afternoon, exactly when dark clouds tend to drench the pitch at the Ipoh hockey stadium. In India, live telecast will be available on Star Sports 2 & Star Sports 2 HD.
