India beat Australia 3-1 to win the four-match series.


The Indian men's hockey team delivered a fantastic performance to defeat World Champions Australia 3-1 to win their third successive match and clinch the four-match Test series 3-1 at the Perth Hockey Stadium here on Sunday.

Upbeat about their last two triumphs against the World No.1 side, who have fielded an experimental team, India opened the first quarter with all strength and dynamism, as a result of which the initial goal came in the 13th minute from the stick of Akashdeep Singh, who perfectly converted a penalty corner.

A couple of penalty corners were awarded to both teams in the second quarter but no one succeeded in materialising the opportunity. When the whistle blew for half-time, the scoreboard displayed 1-0 in favour of the visitors.
