India down Pak in must win match
X
A spirited India notched up a come-from-behind 3-1 win over arch-rivals Pakistan in a must-win match to keep alive their hopes in the Sultan Azlan Shah Cup hockey tournament, on Tuesday.

India were in a spot of bother ahead of the match after losing their opening two encounters, and another loss would have virtually shut the door on Michael Nobbs’ wards.

But, it was not to be, as India scored through Rupinder Pal Singh (5th minute), Akashdeep Singh (9th) and Mandeep Singh (56th) to seal the issue in their favour after Mohammad Waqas gave Pakistan the lead in the fourth minute of the game.

By virtue of Tuesday’s win, India have moved up in the team standings to the fourth position ahead of Pakistan with three points from as many games to end their rival’s hopes.
