India will be eyeing a big win over Ireland in Ipoh, Malaysia, today to keep alive their slim hopes of qualifying for the final of Sultan Azlan Shah Cup. The match will begin at 3.35 PM Indian Time.
After a below-par outing in the first three matches, India rekindled their hopes by registering their first win of the tournament yesterday, mauling hosts Malaysia 5-1.
Before the win, India had lost 2-3 to Olympic champions Argentina and also suffered 2-4 loss against world champions Australia. However, India’s match against England was drawn 1-1.
World champions Australia are already through to the final with four wins from as many games. Barring Ireland, however, all other four teams have a chance to make it to the summit clash.
