Hockey World Cup 2023: Team India on the cusp of do or die, will have to thrash New Zealand to continue medal contention

At the ongoing Hockey World Cup in Odisha, the Indian team will play a do or die match on Sunday. India will face New Zealand at 7 pm at the Kalinga Stadium. If the Indian team overcomes the challenge of New Zealand in this crossover match, then it will enter the quarter-finals. The losing team will be out of medal contention.

This Pool-D crossover encounter will be crucial for both. India beat Wales 4-2 in their last match, while England topped the pool on the basis of better goal defence. England has already entered the top-8.

India ahead in statistics

If we look at the records of both the teams, so far 44 matches have been played between the two teams. In these, India has won 24 and New Zealand has won 15 matches. Also 5 matches have ended in a draw. Means India has won 54.55 per cent matches. While New Zealand’s winning percentage is 34.09 per cent while 11.36 per cent matches ended in a draw.
India and New Zealand have come face to face 6 times in the World Cup. Of these, India has won 3, while 2 were bagged by New Zealand. One match ended in a draw.

Tarrant, Ross and Child can turn the match

New Zealand also cannot be underestimated. Even though the team could not enter the semi-finals of the World Cup so far, it had given a tough challenge to India in the Pro-League. New Zealand defender Blair Tarrant, midfielder Nick Ross and forward Simon Child have the ability to turn matches at any time. Before the match, Indian coach Graham Reid has also said that the match against New Zealand will not be easy, so the team will have to give best performance.

Penalty corners India’s strong point but field goals important too

Talking about the Indian team, penalty corners have been India’s strong point, but the Indian team under Harmanpreet’s captaincy cannot rely only on penalties. The team also needs to make more field goals. However, Indian players have also scored field goals in this World Cup. However, a few penalty chances were also missed.

Indian hockey team on Wednesday defeated arch-rivals Pakistan to secure the bronze medal in the Asian Champions Trophy Hockey 2021 in Dhaka.

Fight for the third place between both countries was a neck-to-neck contest, where the Men in Blue led by Manpreet Singh came out on top and defeated the arch-rivals Pakistan by 4-3 for the third spot in the tournament.

After suffering a defeat from Japan in the semifinals, India had to play Pakistan for the bronze trophy. Earlier a couple of days ago, India had beaten Pakistan in their group match by 3-1 and entered into the semi-finals as the only unbeaten team in the round-robin stages. While in another semi-final, South Korea also beat Pakistan by 6-5 in a close encounter.

The match was a thriller from the very first quarter of the game. India opened the scoring first when Harmanpreet Singh scored from the penalty corner, but it was Pakistan’s Arfraz who equalized for the Men in Green in the first quarter. Once India was in trouble when Abdul Rana scored second for Pakistan and India went behind by 2-1. But eventually, in the final quarter, India gained the momentum and took a crucial lead of 3-2 through Varun Kumar’s penalty corner and Gursahibjit Singh’s equaliser.

And last but not least star striker and veteran player Akshdeep Singh sealed the match with India’s final goal, which put India ahead by 4-2 against arch-rivals Pakistan. Later, Pakistan also managed to score one more goal, but it was enough for India to clinch the bronze medal by thrashing Pakistan 4-3.
