LACHLAN SHARP, TRENT MITTON, AND EDDIE OCKENDEN WERE OUTSTANDING FOR AUSTRALIA AS WAS DANIEL BEALE WHO CONTROLLED PLAY IN THE MIDFIELD BRILLIANTLY. FOR INDIA, SREEJESH WAS OUTSTANDING IN GOAL. TYLER LOVELL DID WELL TOO FOR THE AUSSIES AND DENIED INDIA A COUPLE OF GOOD CHANCES. VIVEK SAGAR MISSED A SITTER AND FOUND THE NET ONCE BUT THE SHOT LOOKED TO HAVE BEEN TAKEN FROM JUST OUTSIDE THE STRIKING CIRCLE. 

20:17 (IST)27 JUN 2018

BOTH TEAMS HAD PROBLEMS WITH PCs BECAUSE OF A DRY PITCH AND DID THEIR BEST TO WATER THE PITCH THEMSELVES. THE AUSSIES HAVE MOVED TO THE TOP OF THE TABLE AS THE ONLY UNBEATEN TEAM. INDIA AND HOLLAND SHARE THE SECOND SPOT

20:14 (IST)27 JUN 2018

20:01 (IST)27 JUN 2018

54' Will India take their goalie off???? What can Harendra Singh do?

20:00 (IST)27 JUN 2018

19:50 (IST)27 JUN 2018

Lachlan Sharp and Trent Mitton combining well for the Aussies up front. What is worrying for India is that Australia seem to be in total command in the midfield. Australia suddenly looking a lot superior and playing to a plan. Can Harendra Singh foil Australia plans with 15 minutes left??
