In the second half England kept pressing, but again was not able to score. Good luck for the English that India stayed defensive and tried to hold the lead. And then England scored: In the 51st minute Tindall converted a penalty corner, followed by Simon Mantell in the 55th minute, who sent a penalty corner rebound into the net.
Not enough with that, in minute 60 again Simon Tindall scored the 1:3 lead for England after a very nice penalty corner combination with two dummies. By then India was fully in the match again and pushing towards the English circle. And with another penalty corner in the 65th minute the Indian captain D. Tirkey sent a blazing shot into the very left corner of the goal. India wanted to equalize, and in the 66th minute they got another short corner. But this time Tirkey`s shot was more to the middle, and keeper Fair made the save – three points for England.
All in all England deserved the victory despite the poor convertion ratio, as India just did not do enough for the match. With two matches already lost, the competition get’s tough for India.
