It is safe to say that the match proved to be just as intense and as competitive as any India-Pakistan contest is expected to be. Pakistan started on an attacking winning an early penalty corner. They failed to convert that and slowly, India started taking control of the match. India took advantage of the better possession and went ahead. Pakistan were looking on the backfoot throughout the second quarter.

The third quarter was where the match came alive. Pakistan struck early to level the score and took control of the game. They then went ahead and India’s defence looked to be in tatters. India then won a penalty corner that was converted by Rupinder Pal Singh. Within seconds India attacked again and Ramandeep made it 3-2.
