India lose series to Australia by 0-2 : Hockey

On Friday Aus beat Ind by scoring 5-2.

Despite Two goals scored by Nilakanta Sharma and Rupinderpal Singh  India has to face lose on Friday from Australia by 2-5.

Every time when India faces Australia most of the time India loses the match. Also on wednesday, India lose to Australia by 0-4 .

In this test match series, Australia win the series by 2-0.

India and Australia have played 10 matches since the 2016 Azlan Shah Cup final. India have won 1, drawn 3 (although they went on to lose two in shootouts) and lost six of them. However, most of the defeats have been very close, barely a one-goal margin.

One can hardly point fingers at new coach Graham Reid for India’s performances in the two matches since he barely got a week with the players before they jet-setted to Perth. But he has got something to work with now. They lost the ball cheaply in the midfield, defended like amateurs and when they raided Australia’s ‘D’, the strikers lacked control and composure – basically, the same mistakes that have claimed the jobs of the last two coaches

Israel Folau has been dismissed by Rugby Australia for his post on social media

Israel Folau has been discharge by Rugby because of his post “hell awaits” gay people in a social media post.

He has won 73 caps for Australia

After his post the  panel found him guilty of a “high level breach” of RA’s player code of conduct and upheld the dismissal. Folau, who had a RA deal until 2022, has 72 hours to appeal against the ruling and is considering his options. An appeal would mean a second code of conduct hearing with the same evidence but a new panel, while he could also try to take his case to Australia’s Supreme Court. The fundamentalist Christian posted a banner on his Instagram account in April that read: “Drunks, homosexuals, adulterers, liars, fornicators, thieves, atheists and idolators – Hell awaits you.” Folau was expected to play at this year’s World Cup in Japan but Cheika has said he is unlikely to be selected for Australia again.

He has recently lost sponsorship deals with Land Rover, who withdrew a car issued to him, and sportswear brand Asics.
