The Indians who began the contest needing to win by a margin of at least seven goals to finish top of Pool D were undone by a staunch and brave Welsh team who silenced the crowd at the Kalinga Stadium.

After trailing 0-2, Wales rallied to draw level with their more fancied rivals before the home team managed a 4-2 win which will not be enough to finish ahead of England who have qualified for the World Cup quarterfinals.

India will have to play New Zealand (who finished third in Pool C after losing to Malaysia 2-3) for a World Cup quarterfinal berth

Akashdeep SIngh played an inspired game, scoring twice, creating chances, and helping out in defence to bag the Player of the Match award.

Harmanpreet Singh finally managed to score off a PC although the Welsh had already pulled their goalkeeper when the drag flick was taken
