Kookaburras triumph over India in nine goal thriller

The Kookaburras and India have turned on a classic as a Blake Govers late show secured a thrilling 5-4 win for the hosts in the first of the 5-match series in Adelaide.

Akashdeep’s hattrick in vain, as Tom Craig and Australia snatch 5-4 win.

What a match! The fighting Australians snatched a win from the hands of the visiting Indians, who held their nerves all along, took 4-3 lead despite trailing often before the well-known last minute disaster had struck them. Blake Govers who was seen struggling with penalty corners in the first three quarters, came alive in the last, striking a brace to put paid to the Indian hopes.  A hattrick by Tokyo discard Akashdeep Singh went in vain while Tom Craig, who set up almost all goals for his team walked away with the Man of the Match epithet. The label was befitting.

Fighting India Done in by the Flair of Tom Craig & Blake Govers’ Late Surge in Thriller

It was the sublime run of Tom Craig and a late surge from Blake Govers that paved the way for world number one Australia to close out a nail-biting 5-4 win over world number five India in the first of the five Test series at the MATE Stadium in Adelaide. Playing under hot weather conditions, both teams took their time to settle down before Tom Craig rushed down the middle and dodged past Harmanpreet Singh and fed Lachi Sharp who unleashed a tomahawk that sailed into the top corner of the Indian goal. Tom Craig was again in the thick of action, bursting down the left flank and relaying a precise pass to Nathan Ephraums for Australia’s second goal. India were kept in the contest by vastly experienced Akashdeep Singh, who scored once in first and second quarter – his second strike – a stinging reverse hit that brooked no answer from the Aussie deep defence.

Akashdeep Singh's hat-trick in vain as Australia defeat India in high-scoring thriller, lead five-match series 1-0

Akashdeep Singh (10th, 27th, 59th) scored thrice but the Aussies prevailed in the end as Blake Govers (57th, 60th) found the back of the Indian net twice from penalty corners in the dying minutes of the game.
