India Women vs Australia Women Commonwealth Games Semi-final 2022, Birmingham: There is each purpose for the Indian ladies’s workforce to be disenchanted after dropping the semi-final towards Australia within the penalty shoot-out (0-3), having missed all their pictures – in a match the place there was nothing to decide on between each the perimeters. The semi-final was performed at a really excessive depth and though Australia took the early lead within the first quarter, India slowly bought their act collectively and have become an increasing number of assured as the sport progressed.

India saved in search of the equaliser within the subsequent two quarters however with little luck as three penalty corners went begging. Australia, probably for the primary time within the match had been feeling the warmth. India got here again strongly within the closing quarter by scoring the equaliser with little over 10 minutes of play remaining within the match and after saving a flurry of penalty corners from Australia, the match went to penalty shoot-out.

It began off precisely the best way India wished. The Indian goal-keeper Savita Punia did what she does greatest. Saved the primary penalty shoot-out shot from the Aussies however as luck had it, the clock didn’t begin and subsequently needed to be retaken. In a Commonwealth Games semi-final, the match taking place to the wire and the organisers forgot to do a top quality test on whether or not the clock was working or not even earlier than the shoot-out began is difficult to imagine, not to mention settle for.

One can argue that the Indians misplaced the shoot-out 0-3 however anyone who has ever laid a foot to a ball would inform you that it’s sufficient for anybody to lose focus, worse lose confidence or get upset. Afterall, the winner will get to play for gold and in a high-pressure match, such moments can fully change the momentum of the match.

Pretty a lot the identical factor occurred throughout India’s bronze match final yr in Tokyo Olympics the place the clock stopped working within the closing quarters. At the worldwide degree, it’s unacceptable and is an absolute shame.
