Share

Indian Hockey Team needed a big win against Ireland to play in the finals of the 27th Sultan Azlan Shah Cup hockey tournament, but India lost its half-time on Friday and was trounced by Ireland 2-3.

Against Ireland, India, who had thrashed Malaysia 5-1 on Thursday to rekindle their hopes of playing a match, bearing a medal, vied for another win on the trot and got on to a start that reflected this intent.

Playing structured and disciplined hockey, India won a penalty corner in the 10th minute.

The Indian Navy soon pressed its Seaking helicopter with a medical team on-board to provide cover to the crashed chopper. The Coast Guard said the crew experienced technical difficulties around 25 minutes after taking off.

Australia took the lead in a tightly contested game when Blake Govers drilled a low shot into the bottom corner from a penalty corner.

And Tom Craig fired against the leg of Gleghorne to win another corner for the Kookaburras, with George Pinner making a good save from the original strike and also keeping out a follow-up attempt, before Sharp finally pushed the ball home with just over seven minutes left. This time Varun Kumar found success to give India a 1-0 lead. Argentina, Malaysia, England and India are all still in contention. But managed to defeat India in this match.

The young lad from Sundergarh, Odisha ensured he didn't miss out on the opportunity as he beat Ireland's goalkeeper Jamie Carr, doubling India's lead to 2-0. India denied Ireland their first penalty corner of a match with a decision for video referral that was ruled in India's favour.

The Bills signed Taylor to a five-year contract extension before the 2016 season that could have allowed him to earn $90 million. The Virginia Tech product also did the unthinkable: leading the Bills to their first playoff appearance in 17 seasons.

India seemed to drop their game slightly in the third quarter with Ireland scoring two back-to-back goals in the 36th and 42nd minute through Sean Murray and Lee Cole respectively.

Bobby Crutchley's team then enjoyed a prolonged spell of possession as they tried to force an equaliser and it nearly came in the 44th minute as Chris Griffiths did well to control a terrific Mark Gleghorne pass, but his bullet strike rippled the netting on the wrong side of the post.

India were awarded two more penalty corners later in the final quarter but failed to score both.
