Champ Stat: What points table points to (6/15/2016)
--s2h Team
The points table of the London Champions Trophy will be in focus tomorrow on the punultimate day, as it throws up so many possibility as to who will play Australia in the final and who will move to fourth position to play for Bronze.

Except Australia which can choose its partner for the final, all other teams have a big stake in Thursday's proceedings at Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre.

The glorious uncertainty of who will take on Australia in the finals of the London Champions Trophy, India or home team Great Britain, reigns supreme in the mind of Indian hockey followers.

undefined Without a loss, even a hint of it, Australia as usual rode like a colossus to take it appointed place in the Friday final.

Their last match in the pool is against India.

There is a chance, which is not misplaced or hyperbole, that the Thursday encounter can well be dress rehearsal for Friday Final.

For that India has to either win, or draw Australia tomorrow (Thursday).

India has not reached the finals of Champions Trophy so far.

India has had no great history in the Champions Trophy especially against today's rival .

However, history can always be made.

Both teams miss out some stars, still did well to be talked about in the top bracket.

The other team in the contention is none other than Great Britain.

GB’s chance is not theoretical, but very much a possibility.

All eyes therefore will be on Belgium-GB which will be played last of the Action Day Five.

If Belgium defeat Great Britain, it will have same points as that of India (7).

Then the margin of victory will count. Therefore, even India would lose to Australia, the margin will have a bearing. Indian defenders need to be extra-careful against Australia tomorrow.

If GB wins, India loses to Australia, GB is through to home Champions Trophy final.

The second match of Thursday is between Germany and South Korea.

The winner will have chance to play for Bronze provided Belgium loses to GB.

Therefore, except India, these two teams will hope for a British win tomorrow.
