India draw against Netherlands; to meet Australia in Champions Trophy Hockey final

India set up a title clash with Australia after they were held to a narrow 1-1 draw by hosts Netherlands in the Champions Trophy Hockey held at Breda. India, which needed just a draw to progress, finished second. Australia, on the other hand, finished on top of the standings despite losing 2-3 to Argentina.

India scored through Mandeep Singh in the 47th minute from a penalty corner rebound but Netherlands drew level by the goal of Thierry Brinkman in the 55th minute.

The final will be a repeat of 2016 Champions Trophy final between India and Australia, where the Australians came out victorious in the shoot-out.
