Australia’s goals were scored by Lachlan Sharp (5th), Nathan Ephraums (21st), Tom Craig (41st) and Blake Govers (57th, 60th) who found the back of the Indian net twice from penalty corners towards the fag end of the match.
The game looked ending with a 4-4 scoreline but Govers scripted the home team’s win with his last-minute goal.
The second match of the series will be played on Sunday.
