What would have been pleasing to see is the way the Indian absorbed sustained Aussie pressure (including 4 consecutive penalty corners) and held the solitary goal lead for good twelve-thirteen minutes before prolific Blake Govers, who did late damage in the first Test, evened things up late in the opening quarter with a rasping tomahawk.
