Match 14: 4th December 2018 at 7:00 PM IST
Ireland and China face-off in the second game of the Tuesday doubleheader at the Kalinga Stadium in Bhubaneswar. This could be a defining fixture for the two Pool B teams to stay in the competition.
Ireland, in their tournament opener, made the reigning champions Australia work hard for the win. They can draw a lot of inspiration from that performance coming into the fixture and would be looking for a similar show.

China, on the other hand, too were brilliant against seventh-ranked England in their opening game of the competition. With a late goal, they managed to draw the game and win an all-important point. They would want to carry the momentum into the fixture and produce another stellar performance.
