Azlan Shah Cup: India salvage pride, finish fifth

Sultan Azlan Shah Cup Ireland stun India with 3-2 win out of Finals contention

"I'm extremely happy to win the tournament for the fifth time on my birthday, and its an extra special day because it's my last Sultan Azlan Shah Cup", said Knowles.

For India Varun Kumar (5th, 32nd minutes) scored a brace, while Shilanand Lakra (28th) and Gurjant Singh (37th) found the bet once each.

The final was goalless until Govers scored from Australia's first penalty corner in the 38th minute.

Saturday's match capped a rather insipid campaign for India during which the only positive results were a 5-1 rout of hosts Malaysia and a 1-1 draw with European powerhouse England.

Juan Martín López (1st) and Gonzalo Peillat (11th) gave the 2016 Olympic champions 2-0 lead.

Jamie Carr was in action first as he controlled his circle with an important boot to intercept a cross ball.

Ramandeep Singh (10') and Amit Rohidas (26') scored for India while Shane O'Donoghue (24'), Sean Murray (36') and Lee Cole (42') scored the victor for Ireland.

India regained the lead again minutes later as Amit Rohidas sent a penalty corner drag high into the corner to send his side into the break leading 2-1. In the 26th minute though Amit Rohidas helped India reclaim the lead with a splendid PC, finding the top net with a fiercely-struck dragflick.

The attritional pattern continued in the third quarter until Govers smashed his penalty corner into the bottom left corner after winning the set piece himself as his shot just brushed an England foot.

Mitton came close moments later, before Kleinschmidt levelled in the 25th minute with a reflex finish after Dylan Wotherspoon's baseline run forced a save from Argentine keeper Juan Vivaldi. It was brilliant play by Talwinder Singh who received a good pass from Simranjeet and later connected it to Gurjant who made no mistake in putting it into the post.

Though India earned a penalty corner in the 50th minute and another one towards the dying minutes of the match, they couldn't convert but ensured they kept the lead to win.
