A clinical India on Saturday continued their winning momentum defeating arch-rivals Pakistan 3-1 in a pool encounter of the 10th men’s Asia Cup hockey tournament. India, after the two easy wins against Japan (5-1) and hosts Bangladesh (7-0), had a relatively tough outing against Pakistan but managed to maintain their all-win record. Men in blue looked firm since the start and controlled the proceedings for the better part of the match, barring the final quarter when Pakistan, trailing 0-3, came hard on the Indian defence in search of goals. However, at the end of the day, Indians came out superior were able to continue their recent domination over Pakistan, that includes back-to-back victories in the Hockey World League Semi-Final in London earlier this year. Chinglesnsana Singh (17th minute), Ramandeep Singh (44th) and Harmanpreet Singh (45th) scored the goals for India, while Pakistan’s only goal came from the stick of Ali Shan in the 49th minute.
