Riding high after winning the Asian Champions Trophy, the Indian Hockey team will face top ranked Australia today in Four Nations Tournament in Melbourne. Malaysia and New Zealand are the other two teams in the competition.

This match against the world number one team is going to be their biggest test.

The last time India met Australia on the hockey field was during the Champions Trophy in London in June, when the Kangaroos won 3-1.

With PR Sreejesh rested for the competition, India have decided to hand over the captain's charge to the experienced drag-flicker, VR Raghunath. India will play Malaysia on November 24 at 12:30pm IST and New Zealand on November 26 at 11:30am IST.

In Sreejesh's absence, Akash Chikte will shoulder the responsibility of goalkeeping. Uttar Pradesh's Abhinav Kumar Pandey is the other goalkeeper in the squad.
