India vs Pakistan, Asian Champions Trophy hockey highlights: Few weeks after they faced off in a much fancier setting at the Asian Games in fight for the bronze medal, India and Pakistan will now vie for the gold medal in the Asian Champions Trophy final in Muscat. Both come into it on the back of stiff challenges posed by Japan and Malaysia respectively. India scraped through with a 3-2 scoreline but Pakistan needed penalty shoot out in what was expected to be a stiff contest against Malaysia where they came out 3-1 winners. These two have met multiple times this year but this is the first contest for a gold medal.
