How have Wales done recently?

The World Cup has been a disappointing one for Wales after such an encouraging period under the guidance of coach Danny Newcombe.

After a sixth-placed finish in the Commonwealth games, there was hope they might surpass expectations at their first ever World Cup.

But a heavy 5-0 defeat to England in the opening game and a 5-1 loss to Spain has left Wales bottom of Pool D with no points heading into their final game.

When did Wales and India last meet?

Wales and India last played each other at the Commonwealth games last year.

India came out on top, winning 4-1 to reach the semi-finals and making it five wins out of five against Wales.
