Gonzalo Peillat’s hat-trick helped Rio Olympics champions Argentina defeat India in the opening match of the Sultan Azlan Shah Cup 2018 in Ipoh, Malaysia on Saturday. The match was highlighted by heavy rain due to which play got suspended during the fourth and final quarter of the match. Amit Rohidas gave India hope with a brace, thanks to penalty corners. All five goals came through drag-flicks in the match. It was a spirited performance by India, who were down to 10 men in the final five minutes of the match after Sumit was awarded a yellow card. India will now play England on Sunday. Under Sardar’s captaincy, the Indian team has never returned home from Sultan Azlan Shah without a medal.
