Australia defeated India in the shootout. But now they have a chance to avenge the loss as both teams clash in the final of the 2018 edition and the last of Champions Trophy

India vs Australia Live Score Hockey Champions Trophy 2018 Live Streaming: India started the Champions Trophy with wins against Pakistan and Olympic gold medallist Argentina but since then, win evades the team. Following the big wins, India were beaten 3-2 by Australia and have drawn with Belgium and Netherlands by 1-1 scoreline. In both games, India were tested and conceded late goals to come out with a single point instead of all three. The late goals conceded continues to be India's problem and they need to ensure full concentration if they are to get past this strong Australia side.
