India to lock horns with Australia in Hockey World League semifinal

Antwerp (Belgium), June 28 (ANI): India will seek to outclass world champions Australia and grab the Pool A top spot in their last preliminary clash of the Hockey World League Semi-Final in Antwerp on Sunday.

Under the tutelage of Paul van Ass, India have so far remained unbeaten in the competition and will be all geared to counterattack the agility of the Australian strikers.

While the Sardar Singh-led side has claimed two narrow victories ahead of the draw against Pakistan, Australia produced an imperious performance throughout the competition, including thrashing Pakistan 6-1.

Ninth-ranked India, who have already secured themselves a berth for next year’s Rio Olympics, are second in Group A on seven points, two points behind Australia.

Meanwhile, Pakistan are third on four points and will next meet minnows France in their last match of the tournament. (ANI)
