Welcome to Sportstar’s Highlights of the men’s hockey 3rd Test between Australia and India at Perth.

  • April 10, 2024 16:48
    Full Time! AUS 2 - 1

    Australia comes away with another win, its third in a row this series. India took the lead against the run of play when Jugraj scored from a PC. 

    Australia were continually knocking on the door since then. The team got a route back when Jeremy Hayward scored a penalty stroke in the 44th minute.

    Five minutes later, Hayward was at the end of a PC and found the back of a net with a powerful shot. Better defensive performance from India compared to the previous two games but the attacking threat was very minimal.

  • April 10, 2024 16:44

    India with a late foray forward. The team has had no real opportunity this half to create an equalising chance. 

    Willock comes away with the ball and India’s last chance also comes to nothing.

  • April 10, 2024 16:42

    Jacob Anderson finds some space in the attacking third. Goes for the shot but it is off target. Australia in complete control as the time trickles down. 

  • April 10, 2024 16:40
    55’ AUS 2 - 1 IND

    Another PC for Australia. Tim Brand tries to play a ball in from the right and it strikes a leg. 

    Sreejesh saves the initial shot, the rebound falls to the attacker and the second shot is blocked as well. 

  • April 10, 2024 16:37

    Aerial ball played towards Rintala, he controls it and twists either way to create a chance. Sumit does well to stay with the man and deal with the threat.

  • April 10, 2024 16:35
    51’ AUS 2 - 1 IND

    Wickham turns brilliantly at the edge of the touchline to try and fashion a pass in. The defence does its job.

  • April 10, 2024 16:32
    49’ Goal!! Australia takes the lead!

    PC for Australia again. This time Jeremy Hayward goes high and beats the outstretched hand of Sreejesh to hand the home team the lead.

    Australia will look to keep up the pressure on India and get the winning goal.

  • April 10, 2024 16:25
    45’ End of Q3 AUS 1 - 1 IND

    A goal for each team in the quarter. Australia started off strong before being pegged back by a Indian penalty corner. 

    Amit Rohidas unfortunately conceded a Penalty Stroke to hand the home team a lifeline which it took with both hands. 

  • April 10, 2024 16:22

    Hayward makes no mistake in putting the chance away, Australia draws level in the game.

    PC corner for Australia. Hayward plays a little layup to Marais whose shot is blocked up the defence.

    41’ GOAL!! India scores!

    Goal!! Hardik with the push, Jugraj finds the bottom right with his shot. India take a lead in the third match! Against the run of play arguably. 

  • April 10, 2024 16:14

    A quieter affair, the third quarter. India still under the pump though.

    PC for India, a quick transition and the pass in to the area, strikes a leg. 

  • April 10, 2024 16:11
    37’ AUS 0 - 0 IND

    Jarmanpreet fails to trap a straightforward pass. Australia handed a chance to attack but the danger is dealt with by the inspired Indian defence. 

  • April 10, 2024 16:09

    Zalewski finds himself in some pressue, surrounded by four Indians. Does excellently well to swivel around and keep the attack going.

    The Indian men’s hockey team would aim for a cohesive effort to avoid a hat-trick of losses when it takes on a formidable Australia in the third Test of the five-match series in Perth on Wednesday. 

    The Indians were drubbed 1-5 and 2-4 by Australia in the first two matches of the series, which is a part of preparations for this year’s Paris Olympics for both the sides.

    The tour is of huge significance for India as it will provide valuable inputs about the areas to improve to chief coach Craig Fulton.

    And the first two matches have already done that as the Indian defence was put under continuous pressure by quick turnovers by the Kookaburras. 

    The Indian defence, led by skipper Harmanpreet Singh, did not have the best of days in the first two games as it wilted when put under pressure and conceded both penalty corners and soft field goals.
