Raghunath is India’s hero

PERTH: India, which will miss this year’s Olympics for the first time, grabbed a last-minute equaliser to rock fancied Australia in the four-nations hockey tournament here on Thursday.

V.R. Raghunath was India’s hero when he forced home a penalty corner in the 70th minute for the 2-2 draw after the reigning Olympic champion had looked set to post its second victory of the tournament.

South Korea, which drew 2-2 with China, and Australia have four points after two matches, but the Koreans have a superior goal difference.

Australia and South Korea will meet each other in the last round robin match on Saturday ahead of Sunday’s final, while India takes on China.

India scored first in the 27th minute from a penalty corner before rapid-fire field goals from Grant Schubert put Australia in front and looking the likely winner until Raghunath’s late intervention.

The results: South Korea 2 drew with China 2; Australia 2 drew with India 2. — Agencies
