Surrey, Canada:

India rounded off their impressive tour of Canada with a 3-2 victory over the home side in their final game to win the seven-match hockey Test series 6-0, at Tamanawis Park here. India, who led 2-1 at half time, scored through Prabhjot Singh (21st minute), Gurwinder Chandi (31st) and Tushar Khandker (49th). Wayne Fernandes flicked home twice for Canada in the 26th and 46th minutes. One match of the series was drawn. The Indians made their intentions clear from the very beginning when Sarwanjit Singh tested Canadian goalkeeper David Carter in the opening minute followed by captain Rajpal Singh's attempt which narrowly missed the mark. Canada took some time to settle down but soon produced a couple of fine moves which tested the Indian goalkeeper Adrian D'Souza. First Philip Wright missed a deflection from Rob Short and then Gabbar Singh's effort went in vain as D'Souza brought off a one of his splendid saves. India broke the ice in the 21st minute after midfielder Sardar Singh picked up the pace. Sardar sent a well-measured pass to Shivendra Singh who in turn pushed to the waiting Prabhjot atop the striking circle. The first timer from Prabhjot went past Carter to give India the lead.
