India meanwhile fall to third owing to goal difference as Great Britain overtake them having played a game less.

15:16 (IST)2 MAY 2017

This means that Australia stretch their lead at the tip which was previously only based on goal difference.

15:15 (IST)2 MAY 2017

India took the lead early on. But couldn't hold on to it going into halftime. And they fell apart in the third quarter as SV Sunil was sidelined for 5 minutes.

The Indians, however, did play the last 9 minutes of the game with a numerical advantage. But the Aussies held on.

But the video referee can't find a foot from Hayward. And that's the end of the game.
