SAS 2015: India face Aussies test (4/11/2015)
--s2h team
In the last pool match of the Sultan Azlan Shah Cup, today, India will be facing defending champions Australia, who have so far remained unbeaten in the team.

In the other two matches, New Zealand will face South Korea while hosts Malaysia will be facing Canada.

India is already out of contention to play for the final while Australia is so far the only team to make it to the final.

undefined India is ranked fourth in the pool behind Australia, New Zealand and South Korea. New Zealand just needs a draw to enter to the final while it is a must win situation for South Korea.

India need to beat Australia to keep the bronze medal hopes alive while Malaysia can only qualify if they beat Canada and hope that Australia beat India.

India and Australia game would be so far the toughest game for India, who has won one match against Canada, drawn against South Korea while lost two matches against New Zealand and Malaysia.

“The next game is Australia, which is the number one side. It will be a tough game of course. Australia is a pretty strong that is a big challenge,” said coach Paul van Ass, ahead of the encounter.

“For me it will be interesting to see under- pressure, who is holding it and who is not holding it, not just individually but also as a team. That information I want to get. I am looking forward for the next game and I want to make it difficult for Australia.”
