India are through to the final of the Asia Cup after thrashing Pakistan 4-0 in the third and final game of the Super 4 in Dhaka. The highest ranked India came into the contest needing just a draw to reach the final. The first half left plenty to be desired as Pakistan built multiple chances and earned numerous penalty corners. However, they failed to make the most of it. After things stayed goalless at half time, India once again emphasised on the big gulf between the two teams with quick and efficient passing in the third and fourth quarter. With goals from Satbir, Harmanpreet, Lalit and Gurjant, India once again beat Pakistan and moved into the Asia Cup final where they play either Korea or Malaysia.

India vs Pakistan, Score and Updates, Asia Cup Hockey:


2007 hrs IST: Lovely move down the right with quick passing and interchange. Comes to Akashdeep Singh who looks up and finds Gurjant Singh. Gurjant, at the edge of the area, finds the smallest of angles to smash the ball into the goal! India 4-0!

2001 hrs IST: GOAL! India make it 3-0! Lalit Upadhyay  is quick to react to a stray ball inside the Pakistan circle. Shot taken and the keeper made a save, the rebound is dutifully converted!

1959 hrs IST: Nasty clash as Sumit goes down. Pushed into the turf. Pakistan get a yellow card with Atiq sitting down. Penalty corner to India. Harmanpreet hammers the ball home! Moves the ball a touch to the left and quickly shifts the ball to the right to beat the keeper. Lovely take

1954 hrs IST: Manpreet and Butt collide inside the circle but unfortunately for Pakistan it is dangerous play and penalty corner for India. Nothing comes from it as it is saved by the keeper successfully. The quick play from the long corner results in yet another penalty corner for India. Plenty of chances for India to score but Amjad Ali stands up to them all. Gets his firm hand to deny an Indian player not once but twice. Good goalkeeping that

1951 hrs IST: Final quarter underway. Varun has a guilt edge chance to try and score but he fails to convert a simple ball at the far post. He was unmarked and had the space to control and take a shot. Takes his eye off the ball

1944 hrs IST: PENALTY CORNER INDIA! Harmanpreet goes for the top left corner but the Pakistan keeper stretches to deny another goal. Well hit and equally good save

1940 hrs IST: GOAL! INDIA LEAD! Beautiful team goal for India. Lovely no-look back pass, Lalit Upadhyay lays it on a platter and Satbir obliges. He deflect the ball despite the presence of the keeper and dinks it over the keeper. Sweetly converted. India 1-0

1923 hrs IST: HOOTER FOR HALF TIME! India 0-0 Pakistan. Both teams hit the post in the first half. Where the first half belonged to Pakistan, the second was more even or could even argue that India looked the better. 

1919 hrs IST: Penalty corner to India and Harmanpreet rattles the top of the goal. Straight into the crossbar and no chance for the keeper had it been inches down

1917 hrs IST: Penalty corner for Pakistan. Dangerous play by India. Irfan to get the shot on and it gets blocked. Comes to Butt and it gets a deflection once again to go over the goal. Long corner. Nothing from it. Green card to Pakistan. They’re down to ten men. 

1913 hrs IST: Quick passing and movement from both teams now. India finally getting that quick passing that has helped them throughout the tournament going and it bothering the Pakistan side. At the other end, Pakistan too get a small chance but the player fails to pre-empt a pass and the attempt goes begging

1908 hrs IST: Pakistan get the second quarter underway. India have plenty to change if they are to beat Pakistan because if the first half is any indication, things won’t be easy

1904 hrs IST: It is 0-0 after the first quarter. Pakistan clearly the more dominant team so far. Have had two penalty corners and three shots. Even hit the post once.

1900 hrs IST: Much more like it from India. Finally pull some passes together. Get the first penalty corner of the game. But Harmanpreet fails to get the shot going. Worth keeping in mind that the venue received plenty of rain throughout the day and was cleared before the game began. So one can expect uneven surface

1858 hrs IST: Pakistan with a third chance. Another penalty corner. Once again attempted at Chitke’s right but this is low and doesn’t have the speed needed. Saved. India survive once again

1855 hrs IST: Second penalty corner for India. Bit silly from India to concede that. Gave away the ball cheaply and even now to have the ball hit inside the area. Drag flick and it hits the post to go out. Chitke beaten to his right and Pakistan with the momentum in the first quarter

1849 hrs IST: Penalty corner to India. A miscontrol inside the India area after a cross is whipped in. Nothing from the penalty corner as Chitke is equal to the shot. As the play continues, Pakistan try to continue the attack but it hits an India foot once again. Or so it seems. Pakistan have reviewed. Nope, free hit to India. Pakistan lose their referral.

1842 hrs IST: Penalty corner being reviewed. Early shout said it was a penalty corner for India. But it looks to be a raised ball. Review in Pakistan’s favour and no penalty corner to India

1840 hrs IST: BEEP! India against Pakistan underway. Pakistan get the ball rolling but nothing from the first possession.

1834 hrs IST: Temperature now 25 degrees and humidity at 88%. Both teams come down the tunnel and ready themselves for the national anthem.

1829 hrs IST: TEAMS:

1745 hrs IST: Still playing the waiting game. Malaysia against Korea will be played after India vs Pakistan. Water logging issues prior to the match

1635 hrs IST: UPDATE: Rain has forced the game to be delayed. It is now scheduled to begin at 6.30 PM.

1615 hrs IST: Hello and welcome to our live coverage of India vs Pakistan in the Asia Cup. India are a draw away from the final while Pakistan need a convincing win and would need a favourable result from the other game featuring Malaysia and South Korea. Plenty to ask…
