    previous meetings in commonwealth games

    16:05: road to the final

    3:55 pm: men’s hockey final of the commonwealth games. India has reached this stage for the third time. the previous two ended in humiliating defeats at the hands of australia. Today, the opponent is once again the mighty Australian team, who have claimed all six gold medals. Can the men of Manpreet Singh leave behind the scars of the past and write history? live action starts at 5pm ist. stay tuned for all the pre-game preparation.


    Story calls to India’s men’s hockey team as they seek to end Australia’s dominance of the Commonwealth Games by securing a maiden gold at the quadrennial showpiece in Birmingham.

    india has never won a gold in the six editions of cwg. two silver medals in the 2010 and 2014 editions is the best she has achieved since hockey was introduced to the games in 1998.

    Highlight: India beats South Africa 3-2 to reach the final

    by contrast, world number 1 australia have been by far the most dominant team in cwg, winning all six golds to date.

    So finishing on top of the podium beating the mighty kookaburras would definitely be a tall order for the Indian and she will have to play out of her skin to pull off the difficult feat.

    But the historic bronze at the Tokyo Olympics after a 41-year hiatus has instilled a high level of self-confidence among Indian players.

    Already secured for a silver, a gold from here will be the icing on the cake for the Indians and the side led by manpreet singh won’t want to miss out on that opportunity.

    But to do that, the Indians will have to improve in every aspect, as the Aussies won’t miss any of their opponents’ failures.

    both india and australia posted identical 3-2 victories over south africa and hosts england to reach the final.

    India’s backline led by ever-reliable custodian pr sreejesh will have to be on their toes and cannot afford to make silly mistakes as the Aussies are expected to exert relentless pressure.

    india’s midfield under captain manpreet has been in fine form with hardik singh and nilkanta sharma showing sparks.

    but it’s the forward that has been most impressive. mandeep singh has been phenomenal up front with his great running and dribbling skills inside defence, while akashdeep singh has also shone brightly.

    The likes of Shamsher Singh, Lalit Upadhyay, Gurjant Singh and Abhishek have also looked threatening in the tournament so far.

    one area that head coach graham reid would be concerned about is penalty corner execution as india converted only one of seven against south africa despite having quality dragflickers like harmanpreet, varun kumar, jugraj singh and rohidas in its rows.

    In fact, the reason behind India’s poor conversion rate on Saturday was South African goalkeeper Gowan Jones, who made fantastic saves on multiple occasions to prevent harmanpreet and co.

    In the bronze medal play-off, hosts England will play South Africa on Monday.
