The Indian men's hockey team will meet six-time Commonwealth Games champion Australia in the final at the University of Birmingham Hockey and Squash Centre on Monday. The match will start at 5:00 PM India.
World No. 5 India, led by Manpreet Singh, have been in solid form at the Commonwealth Games 2022 in Birmingham. They won three out of four games to top Pool B. The wins included a massive 11-0 win over Ghana, 8-0 against Canada and 4-1 over Wales. India drew 4-4 against England. In the semi-final, they beat South Africa 3-2.
Harmanpreet Singh, who scored two hat-tricks against Ghana and Wales, is the trump card. The Indian drag-flicker also surpassed Sandeep Singh's record of seven CWG goals in 2006 by netting nine in the ongoing edition.
India have never won gold at the CWG, and have lost two finals to world No. 1 Australia. The India men’s hockey team won silver in 2010 and 2014 and finished fourth in 2018. Live streaming of the India vs Australia hockey final will be available.
The Aussies, who have claimed all the men’s hockey titles at the Commonwealth Games since the event was introduced in 1998, won their last match against India 7-1 at the Tokyo Olympics.
Since 2010, the Indian men’s hockey team has won only seven of the 42 matches played against Australia.
