Hockey Asia Cup, India vs Pakistan

Adjust Comment Print

Live streaming of Asia Cup hockey Super 4 match between India vs Pakistan on Saturday is available online.

It was a ideal display of attacking hockey as the Indian strikers toyed with the Malaysian defence with short passes, one-touch ball delivery to pump five lovely field goals. India sits atop the table in the Super 4 stage with four points from a win and a draw, followed by Malaysia (3), Korea (2) and Pakistan (1) from two games each.

A win against Pakistan would give India seven points and assure a place in the Asia Cup final.

By virtue of the win, the Indians have also avenged their twin defeats - 0-1 in Azlan Shah Cup and 2-3 in Hockey World League Semi-finals in London - earlier this year.

India's first win, in 2003, came at Pakistan's expense in the final and then again in both countries' last pool match in 2017.

The Indians, who found it hard to breach Korea's resolute defence, came out with goal and dominated the proceedings.

The second quarter saw both the teams battle it out in the midfield as they looked to establish their authority in the match. Towards the end, the match completely turned in favour of India as captain Harmanpreet, Lalit and Gurjant netted goals in 51, 52 and 57 minute.

India relaxed in the fourth quarter, allowing Malaysia some space and they pulled back two goals through Rahim Razie (50th minute) and Rosli Ramadan (59th minute).

A trademark reverse hit by Gurjant from the left flank to Sunil who made a diving attempt to push the ball into the post ensured the local crowds were thoroughly entertained. The Malaysians earned as many as eight penalty corners in the match, but could utilise just one through Razie. However, in the Super 4s stage, Pakistan started the match on the attack as they won three penalty corners inside the first quarter but could not convert any as the Indian defence was up to the task.
