India starts Hockey 9s with a defeat (11/22/2012)
--s2h team
India starts on jarring note at the Super Series Hockey 9s, going down to England 2-1.

Despite taking the lead through Baljit Singh Chandi, India conceded two goals at regular interval to end up losers.

Sardar Singh played prominently in Indian moves, and it was he who expectedly set up its first goal as well.

He sent a perfect feed from midfield to top of D, where Manpreeet Singh picked up the fast ball, went inside the circle to effect a cross. Baljit Chandi, who otherwise did not have any great game today, latched on to the ball right near the penalty stroke spot and pushed to the centre of the net to give India the lead.

However, Fox tapped a high ball to send the ball above the head of PR Sreejesh, who otherwise had an excellent game today.

Early in the match, he anticipated a good hit, and also timely warded off a rebound with a reverse stick.

Following the footsteps of Fox, Condon connected a cross the give the English the winner.

In the first match, Australia pumped in four goals against two by Pakistan to post a thumping 4-2 victory.
