India hammer Pak 6-1 in HWL classification clash

Pakistan set to face India with hope of finish as good as fifth in the Hockey World League Semi-finals in London today (Saturday).

After losing to Malaysia in the in the quarter-finals of the Hockey World League (HWL) Semi-Finals by 3-2, the Indian Hockey team made a superb comeback in their next game and once again defeated their arch-rivals Pakistan by 6-1.

Pakistan continued to display dismal performance in the play offs and seemed under pressure throughout the match. "Pakistan did not have one shot at the goal; not even even one penalty corner, nothing", said Oltmans. But he tried to log the ball over the keeper and missed the goal by a whisker.

Pakistan finally found a breakthrough in the 41st minute when Ajaz Ahmad took advantage of a defensive error on India's part to score a consolation goal.

India could have matched the score of the last game even in the dying seconds, when the last of their three penalty corners was awarded for a faulty tackle on Mandeep inside the circle. Smallest of angles as he moves down the left side.

India had crashed out of the race for the podium after suffering a 2-3 loss to Malaysia in the quarter-finals on Thursday and the second thumping win over Pakistan in less than a week will help to ease some of that pain. Both teams played an attacking style and there were several chances at either end. In the 59th minute, Mandeep scored his second, availing a rebound to make it 6-1. The Indian squad looked totally in joy while the Pakistani players were down a bit but not hopeless. Ramandeep Singh (8th, 28th) and Akashdeep Singh (12th, 27th) scored two goals each, whereas Harmanpreet (36th) scored one goal in the third quarter to get him registered on the scoreboard.
