Full Time! With that, we come to the end of the end of the match, as Australia run away with a 4-3 victory over the Indias, who have looked on rampant form, up until this game. This loss also brings India's three-match winning streak in the Sultan Johor Cup to an end. More crucially, though, this result puts Australia on level terms with India in the group table. The Indians now find themselves in a situation, where they need to ensure a victory against Great Britain, in order to qualify for the final. Australia, on the other hand, need to win by a bigger margin than India, against Malaysia.

14:51 (IST)26 OCT 2017

GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLL!!!! Dilpreet Singh brings India back up to level terms yet again. He received the ball inside the D with his back towards the goal, turned the defender, and tucked it into the top corner, to score the equaliser.

14:50 (IST)26 OCT 2017

And Australia get the proceedings underway in the 4th Quarter.

14:49 (IST)26 OCT 2017

14:16 (IST)26 OCT 2017

14:11 (IST)26 OCT 2017

Huge chance for Australia! Australia break down the right flank, and a cut back takes the entire defence out. However, the resulting shot was saved by keeper Shankar.

And Dilpreet gets the proceedings underway, in Q2.

13:57 (IST)26 OCT 2017

13:56 (IST)26 OCT 2017

Manjeet breaks down the centre, and plays it through, but the Australian defenders get on the ball.

13:54 (IST)26 OCT 2017

Harmanjeet tries to make an entry into the Aussie D from the left flank, but the ball catches an Aussie foot outside, and he has to settle for a free hit. Nothing comes of it, in the end.

13:52 (IST)26 OCT 2017

Australia make a circle entry from the right, and win a PC

13:49 (IST)26 OCT 2017
