FIH Pro League IND vs NZ, Harmanpreet Wins 7-4

Nov 5, 2022

ODISHA, India – The contest did not get off to a good start for India. At the end of the first 15 minutes of play, New Zealand had jumped up to a 3-1 lead thanks to three defensive miscues. After that little hiatus, though, Graham Reid’s team returned with a revised lineup. 

The match’s next six goals were scored by the hosts, who started to control play and possession. While the Indians were ruthless on offense, they were cool under pressure on defense, making vital interceptions to prevent any Kiwi build-up. 

Toward the end, the Black Sticks did succeed in scoring another consolation goal. Reid would not care, though, because he saw the grit his squad showed by rallying after falling behind 3-1 early on in the game.

India’s goals came from goals from Raj Kumar Pal, Sukhjeet Singh, and Jugraj Singh, braces from Harmanpreet Singh and Karthi Selvam, and other sources. For New Zealand, goals were scored by Simon Child, Sam Lane, Jake Smith, and Kane Russell.

That was a strong comeback by Harmanpreet Singh and company, going from 1-3 to 7-4. Karthi had a memorable evening thanks to his two goals. Jugraj delighted in his late goal, and Harmanpreet was outstanding. Coach Reid was only partially satisfied with the fight he saw today since he had hoped for four quarters of good intensity from the Indians.
