...
We will back on Sunday when India take on the USA in a must-win game. This is Subhashish signing off - Do join us then!!!
...
INDIA HAD THEIR CHANCES WITH THE PC's BUT THE IRISH RUNNERS DID WELL TO CLOSE THE ANGLES AND AYEISHA McFERRAN WAS BRILLIANT IN GOAL - IT ISN'T OVER FOR INDIA - THEY CAN STILL MAKE IT VIA THE PLAYOFFS, BUT WILL NEED TO BEAT THE USA IN THEIR LAST POOL MATCH.
...
THE INDIANS LOOKED A LOT SLOWER, LESS SMARTER, A LOT LESS CREATIVE, AND LESS INTENSE THAN THE IRISH IN THE SWELTERING 33-DEGREE HEAT. RANI HAD OPINED THAT INDIA WOULD RELISH THE CONDITIONS BUT IT WAS THE IRISH WHO SEEMED TO COME ALIVE AND OUTPLAYED THE INDIANS IN EVERY DEPARTMENT
...
IRELAND, THE SECOND LOWEST-RANKED TEAM IN THE TOURNAMENT ARE THE FIRST TO QUALIFY FOR THE QUARTERFINAL 
...
FULL TIME: INDIA 0 - IRELAND 1
...
58' The Irish have been brilliant in their marking and with their interceptions today. India have been well and truly outplayed.
...
57' Rani takes a hit herself instead of passing to Vandana who was in a great position to take a crack at goal. Ayeisha McFerran has shown she cannot be beaten with those. 
...
India take Savita off - all eleven players into the attack now!!
...
Reena injects, Deep Grace takes the flick after a dummy by Gurjit - but that does not work either.
...
53' Reena Khokar wins a PC for India.
...
52' The Indians are just not able to get forward in numbers to trouble the Irish defence. NICOLA EVANS MISSES A SITTER IN FRONT OF AN OPEN GOAL.
...
50' The Indians seem to be wilting in the heat here, while the Irish seem to be relishing the atmosphere.
...
48' Monika is denied a circle entry as the Irish double team brilliantly. 
...
46' Nicola Daly has been pretty much everywhere today and here she is in the attack yet again. 
...
TIME AND OPTIONS RUNNING OUT FOR INDIA - THEY ARE SIMPLY NOT AS FAST, AS SHARP, OR AS CREATIVE AS THE IRISH - AT LEAST NOT TODAY-- CAN SJOERD MARIJNE GET HIS TEAM GOING WITH FIFTEEN MINUTES TO GO?
...
END OF Q3: INDIA 0 - IRELAND 1
...
THEY SIMPLY CANNOT - IN SPITE OF TRYING SOMETHING DIFFERENT FOR A CHANGE - FREE OUT TO IRELAND.
...
44' INDIA EARN THEIR SIXTH PC -- CAN THEY GET IT RIGHT???
...
42' The Indians just not as quick today as their Irish counterparts. What can they differently?? The PCs are not working.
...
40' Flanagan on fire as she storms into the Indian circle - Ireland look positively dangerous
...
INDIA EARN YET ANOTHER PC BUT THE IRISH FEEL THE BALL WAS DANGEROUS -- THE REFEREE FEELS MUCH THE SAME - FREE OUT TO IRELAND
...
37' india have a PC-- GOOD FLICK BY GURJIT BUT THE IRISH GOALIE DIVES WELL TO EFFECT A GREAT SAVE - PC AGAIN FOR INDIA.
...
35' The Indians are unable to match the Irish who are stealing the balls from the Indian midfielders and denying space to attack.
...
34' Nicola Evans at the other end does well to weave her way into the Indian circle. Lucky for India that she is unable to get a good cross in.
...
33' Udita finds Vandana unmarked in the circle, but the Irish defenders swoop in from behind to dispossess Vandana.
