Share

South Korea took early lead in the game but India bounced back and managed to level the match 1-1.

Malaysia beat Pakistan by 3-2 in the first match of the Super 4 stage in the 10th Asia Cup Hockey Tournament on Wednesday.

After a barren opening two quarters, Jungjun Lee (41st minute) gave Korea the lead before Gurjant scored (60th) just seconds before the final hooter to salvage a point for the Indians. Despite the several circle penetrations, it took till the 14th minute for the first real chance to materialize, as India won the first penalty corner of the game.

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.

Meanwhile, Malaysia, the second-ranked side, are considered better than three-time champions Pakistan considering the former's all-win record in group-stages and their recent performances in the Hockey World League semifinals.

After ending the first quarter in a stalemate, Korean defence continued to test the Indian forwards as they allowed little room for penetration.

Despite enjoying the lions share of possession and having better scoring chances, the in-form Indian strikers found it hard to breach the resolute Korean defence.

Chinglensana Singh (17th minute), Ramandeep Singh (44th minute) and Harmanpreet Singh (45th) had scored for India against Pakistan.
