#Birmingham: A garland of seven goals. The Indian hockey team lost to Australia in the final of the Commonwealth Games by a big margin. Australia, who won gold in the 6th Commonwealth Games, started the day with a bang. Ajira maintained that dominance until the end of the match.
The Indian hockey team reached the final of the Commonwealth after defeating tough opponents like South Africa. As a result, expectations were high for Manpreet Singh’s team. The Indian hockey team could not fulfill even the second part of that expectation.
Ajira went to play the final after defeating a team like England. As a result, their confidence was at its peak. From the beginning of the match, Australia started to increase the attack. More goals could have gone up in the end. But Ajira missed several easy scoring opportunities. India could not repay even a single goal.
In 2010, the Indian hockey team lost to Ajid in the Delhi Commonwealth Games. That losing streak continued a century later. Despite playing well throughout the tournament at the Commonwealth Games, the Indian hockey team lost to Ajid in the end.
Now the question is, does the Indian hockey team lose confidence when they see Australia in front! Statistics say that. That was proved once again at the Birmingham Commonwealth Games. In the 2010 Commonwealth Games, the Indian team conceded 8 goals to Ajid. Seven goals this time. If it was not for an experienced goalkeeper like Sreejesh, the margin of defeat of the Indian team could have increased that day.
