India defeated England 5-4 on penalty strokes in a stunning semi-final comeback on Tuesday to move into a Commonwealth Games field hockey final against defending champion Australia.

A large crowd of 19,000 supporters went wild and gave the team a standing ovation when goalkeeper Bharat Kumar stopped Glenn Kirkham's third penalty stroke and Shivendra Kumar netted the final one.

World champion Australia beat New Zealand 6-2 in the earlier semi-final.
