Australia emerged triumphant in the final match of the day, overcoming stern resistance from Pakistan to run out 6-1 winners. The result puts the mighty Kookaburras onto six points in the Pool, drawing alongside India and moving three clear of the famous Greenshirts.

As expected, the match was packed full of action and incredible skills, with Pakistan giving the world number 1 ranked team a real run for their money in the opening two quarters.

The Australians took the lead when Jacob Whetton finished off brilliant team move in the 9th minute, but five minutes later Pakistan restored parity thanks to a Muhammad Irfan penalty corner.

It was no more than the Greenshirts deserved, but the Australians stepped up their game considerably in the third quarter to establish a 3-1 lead thanks to Daniel Beale and Matthew Swann.

Legendary attacker Jamie Dwyer made the score 4-1 in the fourth quarter, with teenage sensation Blake Govers scoring Australia’s fifth and sixth goals with a penalty corner double. 

"They played well earlier in the year so we knew it was going to be a fight, but it was nice to grind it away and get some goals in the second half”, said Kookaburras captain Mark Knowles after the match.

It was also a special day for Indian umpire Raghu Prasad, who took charge of his 100th senior international and was subsequently awarded his Golden Whistle the game.
