--s2h Team
India rounded off their impressive tour of Canada with a 3-2 victory over the home side in their final game to win the seven-match hockey Test series 5-0, at Tamanawis Park here.

India, who led 2-1 at half time, scored through Prabhjot Singh (21st minute), Gurwinder Chandi (31st) and Tushar Khandker (49th).

Wayne Fernandes flicked home twice for Canada in the 26th and 46th minutes.

One match of the series was drawn.

The Indians made their intentions clear from the very beginning when Sarwanjit Singh tested Canadian goalkeeper David Carter in the opening minute followed by captain Rajpal Singh's attempt which narrowly missed the mark.

Canada took some time to settle down but soon produced a couple of fine moves which tested the Indian goalkeeper Adrian D'Souza.- PTI

India Hockey: Right step forward

Its good to see India do well against a decent side. Canada is no push over, especially considering the fact that they bead Argentina to qualify for the W.C. I however hope the Indian team achieved the broader objective of experimentation and exposure for the bench. We have tougher challenges ahead of us. I also read Mr Arumugam's letter to the PM. I think its an amazing thought and hopefully some action will be taken.
