Britain beat Australia 4-3 to win Sultan Azlan Shah Cup

David Goodfield added a second three minutes later before the Kookaburras wrapped up the first quarter with several penalty corner opportunities they were unable to convert.

Kane Russell and the Black Sticks lost 4-0 to India in the bronze medal match at the Sultan Azlan Shah Cup.

Malaysia finished fifth after beating Japan.

After charging into the circle, his cross found no takers, but an obstruction on Mandeep earned India a penalty corner.

With three minutes to go for the first hooter, Manpreet Singh set-up a flawless shot on goal with Mandeep perfectly poised to take the shot, but unfortunately the youngster couldn't connect the ball to get a deflection. India started with two successive penalty corners in the second minute of play, but the Kiwi defenders denied Harmanpreet Singh a good look at the goal.




Rupinderpal sent identical ground drag-flicks into the corner past New Zealand goalkeeper Richard Joyce's outstretched right hand in the 17th and 27th minutes.

That was not all, Indian hockey team skipper Manpreet Singh and Talwinder Singh combined beautifully from the right flank, right at the death, and the latter's subtle shot on goal finally made the scoreline 4-0 in favour of India.

The first goal came in the seventh minute of play with Aaron Kleinschmidt scoring a penalty corner after an infringement from Japan's Kaito Tanaka. This was Rupinder Pal Singh's third goal in the tournament. England defeated New Zealand 3-2 in their final pool-stage game. But India continued to impress with their attack, trying to find space for a third goal. The defenders too put up a spirited performance to ensure India held on to the lead.

After the breather, the defending champions who were gunning for their 10th title narrowed the deficit in the third quarter when Eddie Ockenden scored in the 28th minute but it was not long before Ollie Willars extended the lead for the Britons with a field goal in the 33rd minute.

But Manpreet was involved in winning India their fourth goal when he made a baseline pass to Talwinder who was spot on with his attempt.
