The Indian women's hockey team put up a fighting show against Australia A before going down 2-3 in Adelaide on Thursday. Salima Tete (40') and Sangita Kumari (54') netted a goal each for India after Alice Arnott (18') and Ruby Harris (20', 35') had put the hosts in front.

India dominated Australia A in the first quarter, earning a penalty corner in the 10th minute but was unable to capitalise. The hosts then won a couple of penalty corners, but India's defence held strong to prevent them from taking the lead, and the first quarter ended goalless.

India focused on maintaining ball possession in the second quarter, but Australia A took the lead when Arnott (18') scored a field goal.

Harris (20') doubled the hosts' lead moments later as she was free at the far post, allowing her to easily put the ball in India's goal.
