The hosts were unable to create any early momentum and had a penalty corner saved in the first quarter. While Germany pushed forward to break the deadlock, the Indian backline stood firm yet again.
Germany were awarded a penalty corner early into the second quarter but still couldn’t find a way past India’s defence. The team managed to keep out three penalty corners in the previous game too.
The hosts ended India’s resistance in form of a goal from the third penalty corners. This time, defender Zimmermann made no mistake as the World number three side started the third quarter with a lead.
Germany doubled their advantage shortly before the end of the third quarter with seasoned midfielder Hauke getting on the score-sheet. The hosts held on to complete their third successive win.
The fourth match of the series will be played on Thursday.
