The Uncut

London. Due to lack of consistency in performance, the Indian men’s hockey team suffered a 1-3 defeat against hosts Great Britain in their second match of the London leg of the FIH Pro League here on Sunday. A day earlier, the Harmanpreet Singh-led Indian team defeated world champions Germany 3-0, but on Sunday the visiting team remained behind for most of the match. Bandurak Nicholas scored two field goals (in the second and 11th minutes) for Great Britain. Callanan Will (47th minute) also scored a goal for the hosts.

The only goal for India was scored by Abhishek in the 35th minute as a field goal. India got eight penalty corners but the team could not convert any of them into a goal. Great Britain also got five penalty corners and the host team could not score on any of them. India is at third place in the FIH table, one place ahead of Great Britain. India will face Germany in its next match here on June 8.
