Dominant India thrash Pakistan 3-1 in Asia Cup 2017

Although there is no doubt about the quality of Pakistan hockey squad but they were just no match for the Indian talent on Sunday.

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.

In the Super 4s, which get underway on October 18, India and Pakistan will be joined by the top two teams from Pool B, with Malaysia already having qualified and to be joined by the victor of Monday's clash between China and South Korea. Stay tuned for all the live action! A win on Sunday will continue their unbeaten run going into the next round of the tournament.

Pakistan won the very first encounter in 1982 when they registered a thumping 4-0 win over India.

Pakistan had a glorious chance of equalising in the 23rd minute as they earned a penalty corner, but India's Goalkeeper Suraj Karkera made a great save to deny the neighbours.

Q4 48' min: GOAL! India conceded the first penalty corner of the match in the last minute of the quarter but Pakistan couldn't make the most of it.

It was India who broke the deadlock in the 17th minute through Chinglesnsana Singh. "It is a must-win game for us otherwise we know it will come down to the match between Japan and Bangladesh and if Japan beats hosts by a big margin then we are in trouble", emphasized Irfan.
