Hello and welcome to the Live coverage from Azlan Shah Cup hockey match between India and Canada.

India will need to step up their performance by a couple of notches as they seek to reignite their campaign when they meet Canada in their third match of the Sultan Azlan Shah Cup hockey tournament.

India, who are fielding a team without several of their top stars, eked out a scratchy 2-1 win over minnows Japan in the opening match of their campaign before being thrashed 1-5 by strong title contenders Australia.

The Indians struggled with their finishing in both the matches. The conversion rate from penalty corners -- traditionally a weak point for Indian teams -- continues to be a problem. The fact that Rupinder Pal Singh is the only experienced dragflicker in the squad could be one of the reasons.
