India’s hopes of making it to the final of the Sultan Azlan Shah Cup were crushed when they were beaten 4-2 by Australia in Ipoh on Tuesday.
Having lost to Argentina 2-3 in their campaign opener and drawn 1-1 against England in the next match, the loss leaves India with just one point from three games.
India were trailing 0-4 after the third quarter but scored two quick goals through Ramandeep Singh in the fourth quarter to avoid a whitewash.
Mark Knowles, Aran Zalewski, Daniel Beale and Blake Govers scored for Australia.
Still looking for their first win, India will now face Malaysia next on Wednesday.
