...
This means that Australia stretch their lead at the tip which was previously only based on goal difference.
...
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.
...
Last moments of the game and India have made a referral. 
...
60' - Ben Craig with a long clearance. 15 seconds remaining.
...
60' -  Akashdeep with good work. Tries to feed Manpreet Jr. But that is just too much on the pass.

India need a goal and need it now.
