India v/s Pakistan, Asia Cup Hockey

Dhaka: India continued their brilliant form in the Asia Cup Hockey 2017 tournament as the Men In Blue defeated arch-rivals Pakistan 3-1 in their Pool A match in Dhaka on Sunday.

India will now move into the second round of Super 4s where the top teams from both the pool will play in round-robin format before the knockouts. Ramandeep Singh took on the mantle of Indian charge and doubled India's lead over Pakistan in the 44th minute. After the two easy wins against Japan (5-1) and hosts Bangladesh (7-0), as expected India had a relatively tough outing against Pakistan but managed to maintain their all-win record.

Pakistan came on the score-sheet after Ali Shan scored in the 48th minute to give his side a chance. In the next minute, Harmanpreet sealed the fate of Pakistan hockey team making it 3-0 for Indians with a swinging flick.

In their last two encounters, Pakistan had conceded 13 goals combined against India. On the other hand, Pakistan on Friday dropped two points after Japan held them 2-2. That goal seemed to spur them on, and then won a few penalty corners, but all to no avail. At the Hero Hockey World League Semi Final in London, India had thrashed their neighbours 7-1 in the pool stage and followed it up with a 6-1 win in the classification match. Indian stalwart Harmanpreet Singh was on the scoresheet along with Ramandeep Singh and Chinglensana Singh.
