Indian Men's Hockey team upped their game against Ireland to beat them 4-1 and recover from a massive upset caused a day earlier in a fifth-sixth match of the ongoing Sultan Azlan Shah Cup in Ipoh, Malaysia on Saturday.

Ireland managed to score a consolation goal in the final quarter of the game when Dale scored a well taken goal after splitting the Indian defense.

Ramandeep Singh (10th minute) and Amit Rohidas (26th) scored for India, who needed a win to seal their place in the bronze-medal play-off, while Shane O'Donoghue (24th), Sean Murray (36th) and Lee Cole (42th) scored for Ireland.

Ramandeep Singh (10') and Amit Rohidas (26') scored for India while Shane O'Donoghue (24'), Sean Murray (36') and Lee Cole (42') scored the victor for Ireland.

Having recovered from defeat against Australia in their first match of the competition to draw with India and Argentina, either side of a win against Ireland, Bobby Crutchley's side saw Hampstead & Westminster's two-time Olympian Harry Martin, formerly of Old Loughtonians, win his 100th England cap as they looked to secure their progress. India denied Ireland its first penalty corner with a video referral that was ruled in India's favour.

India won a penalty corner in the 10th minute.

They got the lead with Ramandeep coming up with a great finish to direct the drag-flick into the net with a tap in after he had injected the ball perfectly for the drag-flicker Varun Kumar.

One such attempt saw Nilam Sanjeep Xess's fierce pass from right side of the circle to find forward Shilanand Lakra poised in front of the goal.

India began the third quarter with a penalty in the 32nd minute.

India's next goal came off Gurjant's sticks in the 37th minute. It was brilliant play by Talwinder Singh who received a good pass from Simranjeet and later connected it to Gurjant who made no mistake in putting it into the post.

India were awarded two more penalty corners later in the final quarter but failed to score both.
