first_imgIndia produced a superb comeback to defeat Pakistan 3-2 in their third round robin match at the Asian Champions Trophy hockey tournament here on Sunday.For India, Pradeep Mor (22nd minute), Rupinder Pal Singh (43rd minute) and Ramandeep Singh (44th minute) found the target while Muhammad Rizwan Senior and Muhammad Irfan Junior scored for Pakistan in the 31st and 39th minute respectively.India did not get the start they wanted as in the initial minutes of the game Pakistan broke with a long ball and got their first penalty corner of the match but Indian goalkeeper P.R. Sreejesh pulled off two back-to-back saves. (India vs Pakistan, Asian Champions Trophy Hockey: Highlights)The first quarter also saw both teams trying to create openings but it was Pakistan who proved superior throughout the quarter as India failed to find their bearings when Talwinder Singh’s shot went past the goalkeeper’s gloves and then over the post.The first quarter came to end with Pakistan dominating the proceedings with at least three good moves and the Indian defence did well not to concede a goal.In the second quarter, India played with more discipline by not giving away anything in the defence and keeping up the pressure in the midfield. (Sreejesh retained as captain for Asian hockey Champions Trophy)They penetrated the Pakistan circle many times but success came only in the 22nd minute when a long ball from Rupinder Pal Singh went to S.K. Uthapa and then Pradeep Mor slammed a cross into the circle that deflected into the goal.advertisementAfter conceding the goal, Pakistan started counter-attacking with their captain Fareed Ahmed acting as the pivot.The Pakistan defensive structure of Muhammad Arshad, Niwaz Ashfaq and Muhammad Bilal were alert and confident, denying the penetration by the blue sticks.The Roelant Oltmans-coached side went to half time with a 1-0 lead. (India held 1-1 by South Korea in Asian Champions Trophy hockey)Afer the break, a rejuvenated Pakistan started the proceedings much more strongly and found an equaliser in the initial minutes of the third quarter.Muhammad Rizwan Senior snapped a shot that left Indian custodian Sreejesh slightly off balance that resulted in the scoreboard count of 1-1.Soon after the equaliser, Pakistan showed more intent in the game as they scored another goal in the 39th minute to take the vital lead and this time a field goal by Muhammad Irfan Junior did the damage to India.It seemed like this goal changed everything for India as out of nowhere, India scored two goals within a span of one minute in the dying minutes of the third quarter and created panic among the Pakistani players.The first goal was scored by drag-flicker Rupinder in the 43rd minute via a penalty corner and then in the 44th minute Ramandeep Singh scored a field goal. Lalit Upadhyay passed the ball to Talwinder, whose deft pass was deflected into Pakistan’s goal by Ramandeep.In the final quarter, India displayed some good defensive game and held their nerves to outplay Pakistan 3-2.last_img read more
