...
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. 
...
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
...
IT WAS A SPECTACULAR GAME OF HOCKEY THAT WAS PLAYED OUT AT BREDA, BUT IN THE END, THE AUSSIES REGISTERED THEIR SIXTEENTH WIN AGAINST INDIA IN THE HISTORY OF THE CHAMPIONS TROPHY.  INDIA HAVE WON JUST TWO BUT CAME PRETTY CLOSE TO SALVAGING A DRAW TODAY
...
THAT'S IT!!!! AUSTRALIA HAVE WON!!! INDIA LOSE THEIR FIRST GAME OF THE 2018 CHAMPIONS TROPHY.
...
INDIA GET THEIR PC BUT HARMANPREET'S SHOT IS BLOCKED!!!!!
...
59' PC AWARDED TO INDIA -- BUT THE AUSSIES WANT A REFERRAL!!!!!!
...
INDIA 2 - AUSTRALIA 3
...
HARMANPREET DOES IT FOR INDIA!!! GOES LOW AND TO THE RIGHT!!!
...
PC TAKEN AGAIN AND GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
...
PC TO BE RETAKEN, HARMANPREET AND AMIT READY TO TAKE THE FLICKS
...
57' PC FOR INDIA, CAN THEY REDUCE THE DEFICIT????
...
57' INDIA TAKE SREEJESH OFF--- HARENDRA WANTS TO ATTACK WITH ALL ELEVEN PLAYERS!!!
...
55' The Indians advancing in numbers. Australia are far too good in defence. Ogilvie enters the Indian circle but his pass goes wide.
...
54' Will India take their goalie off???? What can Harendra Singh do?
...
The players watering the pitch themselves. Good variation by the Aussies but India survive as Brand cant get to the ball in time.
...
THE AUSSIES HAVE YET ANOTHER PC!!!!!
...
53' Lachlan Sharp does the same at the other end!!!! The Aussies wants a PC!! Can they get one???
...
52'  VIVEK MISSES A SITTER IN FRONT OF GOAL AFTER DILPREET SETS HIM UP!!!!!
...
49' Australia looking to slow down the game a wee bit, effecting long back passes from the edge of the Indian 25!!!!
...
47' SUPER STRIKE BY SV SUNIL BUT TYLER LOVELL NARROWS THE ANGLE AND BLOCKS!!!!!
...
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??
...
END OF Q3: INDIA 1 - AUSTRALIA 3
...
44' Australia as calm as ever controlling the flow and the pace of the game in the midfield. India unable to get going
...
43' Australia's Harvie picks up a yellow and the Aussies are down to ten men. 
...
42' India being patient now, trying to retain possession. Long corner for India. Amit finds space on the left flank but great defending by Australia
...
39' Great midfield play by Australia as they pass the ball around, deny India space, and effect good long passes into the Indian circle.
...
SREEJESH SAVES FOR THE FOURTH TIME AND KEEPS INDIA IN THE MATCH!!!!
...
38' Australia all over India now. Sardar wins the ball for India but again the Indians unable to find space. The Aussies find space instead and earn a PC!!!!!!!
...
36' Harmanpreet trying to advance all by himself. The Indian unable to find space. The Aussies look a trifle more menacing in the second half!!!
...
35' Sustained pressure from Australia. How will India react now???
...
34' PC for Austrlia but pushed wide. Mammoth task ahead for India now as they trail by two goals!!!
...

...
INDIA LOSE THEIR REFERRAL AFTER LOOKING FOR AN OBSTRUCTION
...
32' DILPREET IN THE AUSSIE CIRCLE HAS A GREAT CHANCE--- BUT THE AUSSIES HAVE A GOAL OFF A COUNTER!!!!!
...
SUSPENSION FOR THE CAPTAIN AS INDIA HAD TOO MANY MEN ON THE PITCH BEFORE HALF TIME
...
INDIA DOWN TO NINE MEN AS THE SECOND HALF STARTS!!!! THE AUSSIES DOWN TO TEN!!!
...
THE AUSSIES HAVE MANAGED 6 SHOTS ON GOAL WHILE INDIA HAVE MANAGED 4 BUT INDIA HAVE ENTERED THE AUSSIE CIRCLE 18 TIMES. THE AUSTRALIANS HAVE MANAGED JUST 13 CIRCLE PENETRATIONS. 
...
THE MATCH HAS BEEN PLAYED AT A LIVELY PACE THUS FAR. INDIA HAD THEIR CHANCES BUT HAVENT BEEN TOO GOOD WITH THEIR PCs. SUNIL PICKED UP A DEFLECTION IN THE CIRCLE AFTER BIRENDRA LAKRA HAD MISTRAPPED A PC AND FOUND VARUN WHO WAS UNMARKED. VARUN KUMAR DID WELL TO FIND THE BACK OF THE NET AS DID YOUNG VIVEK A MINUTE OR TWO LATER BUT HIS SHOT LOOKED TO BE TAKEN FROM JUST OUTSIDE THE STRIKING CIRCLE.  
...
