BIRMINGHAM: Australia dem­o­li­shed India 7-0 in the men’s hockey final on Monday to maintain their perfect record at the Commonwealth Games and end their gold medal hunt in style.

Indian Men Brought Down to Earth by Australian Masterclass

It was as if the deep defence of the Indian men’s hockey team had forgotten to set their alarm clock and went into deep slumber save for their shot-stopper PR Sreejesh. It was if the Blueshirts were more than satisfied with their assured silver medal (by virtue of reaching the final). One is not trying to take anything away from the team’s podium finish at the 2022 Commonwealth Games but the manner in which the Indians capitulated in the final against Australia would rankle Indian hockey for some time to come – mind you this is not the first time that the Indians were subjected to such humiliating defeat by Australia – at the 2010 New Delhi Commonwealth Games in front of a packed stadium and in the presence of then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, the Kookaburras had inflicted an 8-0 thrashing. Just a year back, India was walloped 1-7 by the Aussies at the 2021 Tokyo Olympics.

PR Sreejesh Disappointed After Hockey Team’s 0–7 Defeat in Final, Says 'We Didn’t Win a Silver Medal, We Lost Gold'

For most members of the men's hockey team at the Commonwealth Games here India gained a silver medal in Birmingham, for goalkeeper PR Sreejesh the team lost a gold.

Birmingham, Aug 8: For most members of the men's hockey team at the Commonwealth Games here India gained a silver medal in Birmingham, for goalkeeper PR Sreejesh the team lost a gold. It is a matter of perception -- if you want to see the glass as half-filled or the hall empty. Sreejesh chose to see it as an opportunity lost. India did well to reach the final of the men's hockey competition here in a strong competition that involved World No 1 Australia, England, New Zealand, Canada, South Africa, Malaysia, and Pakistan. However, the 0-7 thrashing India received at the hands of Australia in the final proved a dampener on the team's celebrations. The Tokyo Olympic bronze medallists were happy to win a medal, having gone medal-less from Gold Coast in 2018.
