Match 13: 4th December 2018 at 5:00 PM IST
The reigning champions Australia made a perfect start to their title defence, taking down Ireland in their first game of Men's Hockey World Cup 2018. The Kookaburras would be looking to make it two in two against the old foes and make the Pool B top spot their own.
England, on the other hand, would be kicking themselves after conceding a late to have a 2-2 draw with 17th-ranked China in their first encounter of the competition. The fixture is more important for England as a defeat here would leave them at one point after two games.
The top team in each pool gets a direct entry in the quarter-finals, while the second and the third will play playoffs to get into quarters.
