20:26 (IST)7 OCT 2021

52' Chance wasted! India press and win the ball high up the field. Udanta is released on the right, he goes past his man with ease and has ample amount of time to pick the right pass. Udanta looks to whip the ball in with power but overhits it and the ball goes out for a throw-in.
