CWG Mens Hockey Final: The Indian mens hockey team has reached the final of the Commonwealth Games 2022. In front of the Indian team, the Australian team will be in the final. The Australian team will take on the Indian team for the gold medal in the Commonwealth Games Mens Hockey. Earlier, India defeated South Africa in the semi-finals. If the Indian team is successful in defeating Australia in the final, then it will be the first time that the Indian mens hockey team will win the gold medal in the Commonwealth Games.
History points to the Indian mens hockey team as it seeks to end Australias dominance in the Commonwealth Games by securing its first gold at the quadrangular showpiece in Birmingham.
India has never won gold in six editions of the Commonwealth Games. The two silver medals in the 2010 and 2014 editions are the best since hockey was added to the Games in 1998. In contrast, world No. 1 Australia has been the most impressive team at the Commonwealth Games, winning all six golds so far.
Hence, crossing the mighty Australia to reach Gold will surely be a daunting task for India. But the historic bronze medal at the Tokyo Olympics after a gap of 41 years has instilled a high level of confidence among the Indian players.
This final match between India and Australia will be played on August 8. This match will start at 5 pm Indian time. It is worth noting that in the semi-final, India had the team of South Africa in front of India, but in this very exciting match, the Indian team defeated South Africa 3-2. Actually, the Indian team has reached the final of the Commonwealth Games for the third time. Along with this, India has ensured another medal in the Commonwealth Games 2022. Earlier, the Indian mens hockey team won the bronze medal in the Tokyo Olympics.
