India were winless in the Sultan Azlan Shah Cup and faced a strong Australia side in what was a must win game for them. But they failed to come out on top and lost the game 2-4 despite putting up a good fight. The loss means that India will not qualify for the final of the tournament. After losing 2-3 to Olympic champion Argentina and drawing their second game 1-1 against England, India needed a win against Australia to keep their hopes alive but the Aussies have now needed their hopes. Australia now have three wins from three games and have qualified for the final.
