...

68' India 2-1 South Africa - WHAT A MATCH!! Harjeet Singh rounds the goalkeeper but cannot finish the move. South Africa attack and win a penalty corner. Lion-Cachet lurking. GOES WIDE. Brilliant from the scorer but it is wide. 

...

67' India 2-1 South Africa - Decent play from D'Souza in the Indian circle but he dribbles past a couple only to give the ball away. India are defending well. 

...

65' India 2-1 South Africa - Great run by Manpreet and he drives the ball from outside the circle. The ball goes into the goal but it does not take a touch. South Africa survive. 

...

64' India 2-1 South Africa - A counter from South Africa but Harmanpreet is alert enough to stop his opponent. 

...

63' India 2-1 South Africa - BIG chance for India. Harjeet wins the ball and makes a darting run with no one backing up for South Africa. Squares the ball for Mandeep but the latter cannot finish it. 

...

62' India 2-1 South Africa - Beautiful turn by Armaan Qureshi in the South African circle but the shot is well defended. A sense of frustration creeping in the South African team. 

...

60' India 2-1 South Africa - Long pass to Pandey and he controls it well before skying a reverse hit way above the goal. Roelant Oltmans watching from the sidelines. South Africa look a bit off color now.

...

53' India 1-1 South Africa - India looking a little bereft of ideas at the moment. They are attacking from the wing and trying to drive the ball inside the circle. South Africa are reading the game brilliantly. 

...

49' India 1-1 South Africa - India win a penalty corner. Poor control from Harmanpreet as the ball is injected. That is two penalty corners wasted by India. Will it cost them?

...

48' India 1-1 South Africa - This is going to be a test for India as they have not been able to pierce the South African defence in the second half yet. 

...

46' India 1-1 South Africa - The crowd getting behind the team here. But South Africa have a spring in their step. Much more intent and much better hockey from the Men in Green.

...

41' India 1-1 South Africa - India are trying to breach into the South African circle but they are staying put. 

...

...
...

We will be back with second half.

...

35' India 1-1 South Africa - The first half comes to an end with India fending off a South African counter attack. The away team has done incredibly well to draw level.

...

30' India 1-1 South Africa - South Africa have been rewarded for their hard work and resilience. They have done well to defence and it is a wonderful goal from Lion-Cachet. They have grown in confidence 

...

27' India 1-1 South Africa - Finally something for South Africa as they win a penalty corner. The ball is injected and SOUTH AFRICA SCORE

...

26' India 1-0 South Africa - Nice work by the Indian midfield, they are creating a lot of space and hence facilitating attacks. The defence is also working in groups. 

...

24' India 1-0 South Africa - Sumit with some excellent stick work here and he passes to Armaan, who cannot control it. The crowd enjoying the game thoroughly here. 

...

22' India 1-0 South Africa - The big thing to note here is that not only are India controlling the game, they are doing so in the South African half, which is excellent. Varun Kumar intercepts a South African counter to prevent the opponents from taking shot. 

...

19' India 1-0 South Africa - A lot of end-to-end hockey being played here as South Africa are also trying to stir up a fast counter but India are way too quick. That is something you would not usually hear about India. 

...

17' India 1-0 South Africa - Beautiful hockey from Simranjeet as his run and pass fuel a counter attack and India win a penalty corner. The ball is injected with Harmanpreet lurking. HE TAKES THE SHOT but it is saved. 

...

15' India 1-0 South Africa - The pace from India is quite remarkable and they are not letting the opponent rest for a bit. Right as we say that, Indian keeper Dahiya is brought into action and he makes a save. 

...

14' India 1-0 South Africa - India are looking absolutely lively here and are not letting South Africa breathe. Yet another attack and a shot on goal is saved. Qureshi takes a reverse hit shot but was off balance. 

...

11' India 1-0 South Africa - GOOOOOOOALLLL India lead!!!! Captain Harjeet Singh scores the opener for the hosts. He receives a ball in the circle and with the South African defence pushed back, Harjeet makes no mistake to slot it home. India are up and running. 

...

10' India 0-0 South Africa - This time South Africa try an aerial pass but it is blocked by Harmanpreet. Harjeet threads a beautiful pass down the line to Ajit but the ball goes out of play. 

...

8' India 0-0 South Africa - Another aerial ball played into the circle by India and this time it is Varun Kumar but yet another miss. India are going at it continuously. South Africa are not on the same tempo. They are managing to survive. 

...

6' India 0-0 South Africa - Parwinder steals the ball close to the circle and takes it forward but a great recovery from the defender prevents a shot on goal. India have started really brightly here.

...

4' India 0-0 South Africa - CHANCE!!! India almost score. A long aerial ball played into the the South African circle but the forward does not get a touch on it. Almost there. India are taking the game to the opposition. 

...

2' India 0-0 South Africa - We are underway in Lucknow here and India are pushing through a lot of passes. An attack straight away but the ball goes out of play. India are on the front foot straight away.
