Live Hockey Score, PAK 0, IND 4

The win is India's second in a row over Pakistan in the tournament after a 7-1 result in their first match. While successful circle penetrations were not easy to come by for India, Malaysia surprised them with two goals in the first five minutes of the second quarter that dented India's start.

At the other hand, Pakistan lost to Argentina by 1-3 in the quarterfinal of the league's semifinal round, which was also the qualifier for Hockey World Cup at London's Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

Malaysia, now ranked 14th in the world, started well but missed a number of penalty corners which eventually proved costly as Lucas Vila struck from a penalty corner in the 13th minute to give his team the lead.

India look like an absolute possessed team whenever they take on Pakistan in a hockey match. The victor between India and Pakistan will next face Canada for a fifth-sixth place then. Akashdeep had a chance to double the lead four minutes later but it went abegging. SV Sunil rides strong challenges and passes the ball across the face of goal and Ramandeep Singh dives to deflect the ball into the goal. Thumbs up from Roelant Oltmans as Akashdeep Singh makes it 3-0 to India. This spectacular goal narrowed India's gap to 1-2.

India took their lead to a convincing 4-0 in the second quarter. But Indian cannot convert from it as it is stopped by a defender befoer Harmanpreet can get a shot away. Penalty corner. India have been 4/15 on PC's this tournament and that record gets worse.

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.
