India 2 - 4 Australia

The Indian team showed great spirit and started off on a strong note. A first-half penalty stroke from Mark Knowles put the Aussies in front. But a second-half demolition from the current world champions ruined any chance of India's comeback in the tournament. 

Ramandeep Singh reinstilled hopes with a late double brace but it wasn't enough as Australia whizzed past three goals in the Quarter 3 to seal the match and keep their unbeaten streak in the tournament intact.
