Thank you for joining us. It has again been a pleasure. Join us again on Thursday at the tournament reaches the knock out stages. 

Till then, goodbye and good night.

This is Souvik Roy Chowdhury bidding adieu.

The quarter-finals will be held on Thursday (22nd June).
...
...
IND will face the team that finishes third in POOL A in the Quarter Finals -  which seems to be a fight between Malaysia and China.

...
<POOL B standings as of now: >
...
But that is overturned. 

IND lose their final pool game. Really good performance from the Netherlands. India will have a lot to do as they head back to the drawing board. 

So IND finish second in group B.
...
The hooter goes but IND wants a referral.

Again for the five-metre infringement.
...
60' - Last gasp from IND. But it's not going to be enough.
...
59' - Brilliant from Chinglesana. Ball from Pardeep Mor was difficult but he controlled it and then gets it past two Dutch midfielders.
...
58' - HARMANPREEET!

Great shot towards the top corner and an equally brilliant save from van der VEN.
...
57' -  AKASHDEEEP! Nearly. Great instinct but can't get it beyond the keeper who was off his line quick.

But he gets the rebound and looks to play it over the keeper but is fouled and IND get a PC!
...
56' -  IND get a free hit in a dangerous area. But they have to go back.
...
56' - The last few minutes and IND need a goal now.
...
55' -  Sander Baart with the effort there. But the IND get that away with ease.
...
55' - PC for NED!

Ball thrashed from the right from the Dutch and that seems to have come off the foot from Surender.

...
54' -  IND on the charge. Mandeep on the right baseline but he can't past the three Dutch defenders.

And they clear away.
...
53' -  WHAT A BALL!

Sumeet to Surender who produces a great ball. Two IND forwards dive forward but can't get the decisive touch. 
...
51' -  IND on the charge but a brilliant tackle sees the ball turnover.
...
50' -  SAVED!

That was travelling. Low and to the right of the keeper but he van der VEN gets down and produces and brilliant stick save.
...
50' -  PC for IND!

And yellow card to the Dutchman. Push on the back of SV Sunil punished there.
...
49' - Akashdeep down the left. Gets SV Sunil who puts the ball in and gets IND a long corner.
...
48' - Surender seems to be miffed. But the decision doesn't cost IND!
...
48' - NED on the charge and Van Dam finds Schuurman. He gets down the left but his ball from the left is too high.
...
47' - Sander de Wejn steals the ball from Manpreet and then a back stick from Harjeet gives away another free hit.
...
Final quarter underway and the Dutch gets us underway.
