Goodbye and goodnight!! :)
...
Thanks for joining us today. Join us again tomorrow as India take on New Zealand in the 3rd/4th place playoff.
...
Penalty corners have been haunting the team for the entire tournament. And it was no different today. We couldn't convert from any of our five PCs. 

Rupinder took three. Harmanpreet one. And even when they pulled off the variation beautifully, Sardar Singh failed to make it count. He particularly had a very bad game.
...
The Indian team never quite arrived. It seems the one day break didn't really work in their favour. Too many players who didn't really account for their presence. And the there was no cohesion in the side!
...
This is Malaysia's first win of the tournament. And India's second loss!!

This means that the final tomorrow will be between Great Britain and Australia.

India, meanwhile, will be playing in the 3rd/4th playoff against New Zealand.
...
AND THAT'S IT!!!

The hooter blazes out. India even had a golden chance in the dying seconds. But even that is put wide. 

The story of the game for India summed up there. 
...
60' - Malaysia are a man down!!!

India tries to get a shot in. But wild swing and a miss. The clock is running down!!
...
Let alone scoring 2, India are losing this!!
...
59' - Malaysia nearly!!

Faizal gets a FH!!! Lifts that one. But it can't be reached.
...
58' - Variation!! 

Great deception. Into Sardar Singh by Rupinder. But Sardar into the side netting. What a bad game from the veteran.
...
58' - PC for INDIA AGAIN!!!


Another great turn from Manpreet. Gets past his man and easily finds a foot. 
...
57' - Harmanpreet this time with the flick. Blocked. And it's a defensive free hit.

India challenges but that is reverted. India lose their challenge.
...
57' - PC FOR INDIA!!!

Manpreet with a great run. Into Sunil and the bouncing ball catches Jahlil on the foot.
...
57' - Pardeep Mor thrashes one across goal. But no one there. India needs this now.
...
56' - Ball into the circle!! Chinglensana slides in. Deflected out for a long corner.
...
55' - The Malaysian trying to run down the clock. 
...
55' - Akashdeep this time. Runs out of space and India running out of time. They need something quick.
...
54' - Rupinder with a reverse stick cross into the box. But again that's wayward. Aerial and goes over everyone.
...
52' -  India on the attack. Claim a long corner. But it's Malaysia's ball.
...
India again with a flying keeper!! Chikte goes into the dugout..
...
50' - GOAAAALL!!

This time it's Shahril Saabah. That was pure power. At the goalkeeper but at an awkward height. Goes through Chikte. He will be disappointed.
...
50' - Fitri again. And another PC. Off of the heel of Manpreet Singh who has just come back on.
...
49' -  And India get on a 4 on 4 break the other side. Sumeet and Akashdeep combine.

Akashdeep with a sloppy touch and Indian shoulders are dropping.
...
49' - Tried a variation. Tried to sliding deflection. But Faizal can't get to it.
...
48' - Fitri with a challenge. Malaysia was given a free hit. And that seems to have struck a foot.

PC for Malaysia.
...
48' - Nik Muhammad Aiman with a great turn on the left. But they can't get much change from the Indian defence once they enter the circle.
...
47' - A green card for Manpreet Singh. A bad push on the Malaysian player.

Chikte comes into the game as India go down to 10 men for the next two minutes.
...
46' -  Malaysia on the charge early on. But Harmanpreet, who is the designated keeper comes out with a great tackle.
...
GAMBLE!!


India takes Chikte off. They will play with a flying keeper. All out from India.
...
India needs a leader. India needs a star. Who is going to be the one to stand up?
...
And that's it. The third quarter is over. 

India has 15 minutes to get two goals. Can they do it?


...
45' -  India with a free hit just outside the box. But they can't get inside the Malaysian circle. Great work from Najmi there.
...
44' - Harmanpreet with a beautiful run down the right. But yet again India can't get into the circle.
...
42' -  The Malaysian trying to barge open the Indian defence. But the Blueshirts are resolute at the back.
...
41' -  Good defensive work by India as they force Malaysia to go all the way back.
...
40' - Tengku with a run for Malaysia this time. And he earns a FH!!
...
39' - Talwinder tries to turn his man on the right side of the circle. But the forward slips and another opening goes to waste.
...
38' - India really looking out of sorts in the final third. Even the cool Roelant Oltmans seems to be a bit frustrated at the moment.
...
37' - Azri Hassan with a run this time down the run. But doesn't have the stick control to really make that threatening.
...
36' - India playing the ball around. But Sardar's ball into the box is deflected. And Malaysia draw a FH!
...
But this is not good enough from India.
...
35' - Faizal Saari with another run but he is shadowed by Harmanpreet. Very well defended and India get a 16 yard hit out of it.
...
34' - Faizal with a drag flick now. Rupinder Pal Singh comes out first. And gets his stick to it.

Long corner for MAS!!
...
And Malaysia's claim has been upheld. Stick shield by India.

PC for Malaysia.
...
35' - Najmi Farizal Jazlan with the drag. Blocked by the Indian defence via a stick. Cleared.

But Malaysia are calling for a review. They feel there was a stick check.
...
34' -  Incessant pressure from Malaysia and finally a penalty corner. 

Faizal finds the foot of Sardar Singh.
...
33' -  Driven into the circle. But great defection by the Indian defence. Long corner. 
...
32' - Great break by Malaysia. An attempt at a circle penetration. Blocked but deflected up. FH for Malaysia.
...
31' - And we are off. 

India on the front foot from the get go. Deflected and needed to be padded away by Kumar.
...
The players are back on the field. And India have 30 minutes to etch their place in final.
