It came down to the ninth shot as India and New Zealand were tied 4-4 after the first eight shots in the shoot-out. Sam Lane scored for the Kiwis as he reversed his mistake from the first round of shots. However, Samsher Singh of India was unable to reverse his mistake from the first round of shots and missed two in two. In sudden death, if you miss a shot, you are gone, especially if the team taking the penalty before you have scored. 

So India’s dreams of a World Cup medal have dashed down again and it would now have to wait at least three more years to try and get a World Cup medal. 

In the regulation time, India were up 3-1 for the first 43 minutes before conceding once at the end of the third quarter and then again in the fourth quarter to finish the game at 3-3. For India, Lalit Upadhyay, Sukhjeet Singh and Varun Kumar scored in regulation time. For New Zealand, it was Sean Findlay, Sam Lane and Kane Russell with the goals in regulation time.
