Azlan Shah Cup: India need big win over Ireland to keep hopes alive
IPOH: A young and inexperienced India will be eyeing a big win over Ireland on Fr iday to keep alive their slim hopes of qualifying for the final of Azlan Shah Cup hockey tournament and hope f or favourable results in other matches. After a below-par outing in the first three matches, India rekindled their hopes by registering their first win of the tournament on Thursday, mauling hosts Malaysia 5-1. Before the win, India had earlier lost 2-3 to Olympic champions Argentina, 2 -4 agains t wor ld champions Australia and drew 1-1 against England. World champions Au st r alia ar e alr ea dy through to the final with four wins from as many games but barring Ireland, all other four teams have a chance to make it to the summit clash.Australia are leading the points table with 12 points ahead of second-placed and Olympic champions Argentina (7 points), Malaysia (6), England (5) and India (4). Ireland are already out of the race with four consecutive defeat s.But India' s fate completely depends on lots of permutations and combina tions . For I ndia to qualify for the final, they
will hope that Austr alia beat Argentina in the first match of the day, then they will have to beat Ireland by a big margin and then hope that the match between Malaysia and England ends in a draw. With four big-ticket events lined up this year, including t he Commonwealth Ga mes a nd the Asian Games, the Indians have opted to field a young and inexperienced side under veteran Sardar Singh.India chief coach Sjoerd Marijne wanted to test all his options before deciding on his squads for the big tournaments. And a s exp ect ed the Indians took time to get their game going in the tournament. Marijne's boys looked erratic in the first three games before dishing ou t their best dis play against Malaysia. Against Malaysia, Shilanand Lakra, Gurjant Singh, Sumit Kumar and Ramandeep Singh scored and Marijne would be hoping for the same spark from his f or war ds on Friday.Skipper Sardar especially need to produce an inspiring performance as an ordinary show in the tour nament cou ld well draw the curtains on his illustrious career. This could well be make or break tournament for Sardar if he wants to prolong his career till 2020 Olympics as the team management ha ve alr ea dy shown t heir inter est on younger legs keeping the busy year in mind.
