Australia defeated India 4-3 in the final game of the two-match hockey series in Victoria on Wednesday.
Playing with 10 men for large periods of the third quarter, India defended stoutly but were edged past by the home side in a pulsating match.
The visitors were the first to rock the board, Akashdeep Singh scoring in the sixth minute.
The home team settled into the game a bit as the period went on and scored in the 13th minute via Trent Mitton. That goal would take both teams into the first break level at 1 goal apiece.
In an action-packed second quarter, Captain V.R. Raghunath gave India the lead off a superbly executed penalty corner in the 22nd minute.
