Sukhjit Singh scored a field goal three minutes into the second quarter to give the home team a narrow lead at half-time. Varun Kumar capitalized on a penalty corner in the 40th minute to make it 2-0, but Anton Boeckl pulled one back in the closing stages of the third quarter.

An aggressive India showed their intent by sealing victory with a field goal from Abhishek in the 53rd minute.
