Sardar Singh called for questioning, Hockey India fumes

India put up an impressive first-half display to dismantle Canada 3-0 for their second consecutive victory in the Hockey World League (HWL) Semi Final Pool B here on Saturday.

With two back-to-back defeats against The Netherlands (0-4) and Canada (0-6), Pakistan were desperate for a win against India to advance in the League. This win has ensured India a quarter-final berth in the tournament though they still have to play against Netherlands on Tuesday.

A clinical performance from India led them to an emphatic 7-1 win over a hapless Pakistan here on Sunday. A fifth goal from Akashdeep Singh made Pakistan's afternoon even more sad. This was the first game between the two sides, since the 2016 Asian Champions Trophy final, which India won 3-2. And on the other side they got 10 chances and they scored 7 goals.

The lone goal for Pakistan came through Umar Bhutta three minutes from the hooter when the contest was already lost. India endured a poor start in reply, losing wickets at regular intervals and slumping to a paltry score of 158 all out in 30.3 overs, with Hardik Pandya the only Indian offering some resistance.

There was still time for Scotland to have a goal of their own chalked off via video referral, with Alan Forsyth's effort from a penalty corner disallowed as it was unclear whether the ball had touched a stick on its way into the net.
