Reeling from their first defeat in three matches at the Champions Trophy, India will take on Belgium at The Netherlands on Thursday.
India, who had beaten Pakistan and Argentina in the first two matches, were handed a 2-3 defeat by world champions Australia on Wednesday. It was a match marked by profligacy among the Indian ranks — not only did they concede possession cheaply on multiple occasions, they could not convert all but one of their nine penalty corners. Against Australia, Varun Kumar and Harmanpreet Singh found themselves on the scoresheet.
The defeat left India at third spot in the standings with six points from three matches. Australia, on the other hand, zoomed atop the standings with seven points from three matches. The Netherlands are currently in second spot on the table with six points. According to the league’s format, the top two sides in the standings after the round robin stage of the six-team event will play in Sunday’s final.
The Australia result means that India will have to win their remaining matches in the tournament, beginning with Belgium on Thursday.
