In contrast, world number one Australia has been the most dominant team at the CWG so far, winning six golds so far. So, overcoming the mighty Kookaburras and finishing on top of the podium will surely be a tall task for India and they will have to play out of their skin to achieve the elusive feat.

But the historic bronze at the Tokyo Olympics after a gap of 41 years has instilled a high level of confidence among the Indian players. With a silver already secured, a gold from here would be the icing on the cake for the Indians and the Manpreet Singh-led team would not want to miss out on such an opportunity.

But to achieve this, the Indians will have to improve on all fronts as the Australians will not miss any errors from their opponents. Both India and Australia recorded 3-2 victories against South Africa and hosts England respectively in the finals.

Led by the ever-reliable custodian PR Sreejesh, India’s backline will need to be on its toes and the Australians can’t afford to make silly mistakes, expected to apply relentless pressure. Hardik Singh and Neelkant Sharma have been sparking with India’s midfield in fine form under captain Manpreet.

But it’s the forwardline that has been most impressive. Mandeep Singh has been outstanding with his excellent runs and dribbling skills inside the D, while Akashdeep Singh has also shone. Players like Shamser Singh, Lalit Upadhyay, Gurjant Singh and Abhishek have also posed threats in the tournament so far.

Head coach Graham Reid will be worried about India converting just one of seven penalty corners against South Africa despite having quality dragflickers in the likes of Harmanpreet, Varun Kumar, Jugraj Singh and Rohidas.

In fact, the reason behind India’s poor PC conversion rate on Saturday was South African goalkeeper Gwan Jones, who made brilliant saves on multiple occasions to deny Harmanpreet and company. .
