Prime Minister Manmohan Singh will cheer the Indian hockey team which clashes with world champion Australia in the Commonwealth Games final at the Dhyan Chand Stadium in New Delhi on Thursday.

Singh will watch the match in the company of former Olympians, PMO sources said.

UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi and her son Rahul had cheered the Indian hockey team at the same venue where it had thrashed Pakistan 7-3 and entered semifinals. In the semis, India defeated England in a tie-breaker on Tuesday.

Singh was present at the dazzling opening ceremony of the Games along with President Pratibha Patil and Prince Charles.
