Full Time! And with that, we come to the end of the match, as England grabbed a late winner through Ward, to win the match 3-2. The hosts put on a spirited display in the fourth quarter to come from two goals behind, and level things up at 2-2. However, England managed to get the crucial winner in the end, as India stay winless in the 2017 Hockey World League Finals. 
...
58 - Akashdeep gets a yellow card for a frustrated tackle, and India are down to 10 men. The Powerplay seems to have been negated now.
...
57 - India have now thrown caution to the winds. They have taken off keeper Chikte, and are going for the Powerplay!
...
57 - GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLL!!!! Ward scores his 2nd goal of the night, to put England in the lead! He found himself in some space inside the India circle, dummied, and took the shot on reverse, to place it perfectly in the goal.
...
56 - Akashdeep soars up the left flank, plays it to Sunil in the circle, and makes the run down the by-line. However, Sunil turns and does not play the ball back to him, as the chance peters out.
...
54 - The intensity of the game has suddenly gone a notch or two. Both sides are now showing great intent to get their attacks going.
...
52 - Rupinder produces a wonderful ball to switch the play to Lalit in space. Lalit passes to Akashdeep up front, but the forward runs into a crowd in front of the England area.
...
49 - GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!!!! Rupinder puts India right back in the match. His PCs have not been as accurate tonight, but this one was inch perfect, as it was placed just out of an outstretched England keeper's reach, as the ball nestled into the net.
...
49 - PC for India! Rupinder lines up the shot, but it catches an English foot, and India get another PC.
...
49 - Chance! Ward crosses it in from the right, as a diving Griffiths gets a stick onto it just a couple of yards from goal. However, it took a weird touch, as the ball sailed over the bar.
...
47 - PC for India! GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLL!!!! Akashdeep pulls one back for India! Rupinder dragged his shot right down the middle, but it was saved. However, Akashdeep was alert on the rebound, and turned it in from close range.
...
46 - India get the proceedings underway in Q4, but it seems to be the same story all over again. They just cannot find any space past this English defence.
...
End of Q3! Its a rather grim affair for India, here. They have done well to get a number of quality attacks in, but a defensive error from Harmanpreet gave England the 2-0 lead, as the visitors look to be firmly on the front foot.
...
42 - Manpreet lines up the shot from this PC, but it is blocked. Harmanpreet gets on the rebound but fails to make anything o it.
...
43 - PC for India! Harmanpreet lines up the shot, but it catches a deflection. There's some confusion as the umpires discuss their decision, and award India another PC.
...
43 - GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ward puts England in a 3-0 lead! Horrible piece of defence from Harmanpreet, as he misses a long ball into the area. Ward gets on the ball in front of the keeper, dummied, and turned it into the goal.
...
40 - Gurjant tries to launch a counter attack for India, but he takes too much time on the ball, and is soon closed down.
...
37 - Its been a good period of play for India, as they look to lay siege around the England area, but the Englishmen are defending well.
...
35 - Its been a rather slow game in the second half. Both the sides are being cautious, and are looking to build slowly from the defence. Spaces are very few and far between
...
33- Lalit plays in a cross from the left, but it is cleared. However, the clearance is intercepted at the edge  of the circle by Tirkey, who immediately pulls the trigger, but the shot is saved
...
31 - India get the proceedings underway for the second half, but England soon get on the ball, and look to dominate the proceedings.
...
Half Time! And with that, we come to the end of the first half, with England leading the match 1-0. India have looked a little sluggish start in the match, here. They have only gotten one shot on goal. England, on the other hand, have managed to stop India's counter-attacks with their half-court press. They have dominated play with 56% or possession.
...
27 - Dickson gets a flick-on from Antell, and enters the cricle, but is crowded out.
...
25 - GOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! David Goodhill gets England int he lead. He waited patiently in front of goal, and managed to connect with a cross among a barrage of defenders, to turn it in from close range.
