India mislaid their last and final organisation diversion during a Sultan Azlan Shah Cup in Ipoh, Malaysia to order themselves out of personification in a bullion award match. Shahril Saabah scored a usually idea of a diversion in a 51st notation after Malaysia converted their fourth chastisement dilemma chances with Akash Chikte beaten down a centre. This helped Malaysia to first win in a competition while handing India their second defeat.

The four-time champions India didn’t furnish a clever arrangement of hockey with many wandering passes and didn’t demeanour convincing going forward. This helped hosts Malaysia simply enclose India who came into it with 4 goals in a prior compare (vs Japan) which kept their hopes alive. But on Friday, these heroics were not to be steady with nothing of a players station adult and creation themselves count – a approach Mandeep Singh did opposite Japan.

India came into a compare with a transparent believe of their predestine in a tournament. They indispensable to win by dual goals or 3 goals goals to book their berth in a final opposite Australia. 1-0 wouldn’t have been adequate and 2-1 would have forced a chastisement fire out with Great Britain. But as things transpired, India never looked good adequate to win and constructed correct scoring chances usually in a final few mins of a game.

The best of a lot was a final one where Chinglensana Singh trapped a round for Rupinder Pal Singh who upheld it to Sardar Singh though a latter was incompetent to pull a round home after a good variation.

Malaysia were 0/3 from chastisement corners until they pennyless their steep of dual true games though a goal. A peppery strike by Saabah once again brought into doubt India’s disadvantage in idea in a deficiency of PR Sreejesh.

The better means India won’t competition a bullion award match, that will be played between Australia and Great Britain, though will face off with New Zealand in a third-fourth place compare on Saturday evening.
