Hockey Asia Cup 2017: Dominant India crush Malaysia 6-2
 
(NEW DELHI, Oct 19, 2017):India displayed how dangerous they can be when they play an all-out attacking game as they pummelled Malaysia 6-2 in their second game of the Super 4s stage of the Asia Cup hockey in Dhaka on Thursday. With the win, India jumped to top of the Super 4s standings with four points from two games.

Unlike yesterday, when they secured a 1-1 draw with a last-gasp equaliser against South Korea, India played a dominating game against the in-form Malaysian side. And the approach paid off well for the world no. 6 India as they led Malaysia by five goals to nil after three quarters.

India scored five field goals through Akashdeep Singh (14th minute), SK Uthappa (24th), Gurjant Singh (33rd), SV Sunil (40th) and Sardar Singh (60th), while Harmanpreet Singh converted a penalty corner in the 19th minute. Malaysia's goals came from the sticks of Razie Rahim (50th - PC) and Ramadan Rosli (59th).

Malaysia came all out in the final quarter and scored two goals but it was too little too late for them. Veteran Sardar made sure that India scored at least a goal in each quarter by pumping in the sixth in the final minute of the match.

India will face arch-rivals Pakistan in their final match of the Super 4s stage on Saturday.
Akashdeep scored a brilliant field goal in the 14th minute to give India advantage over Malaysia at the end of the first quarter. The constant attack in the final five minutes of the Q1 paid off for them.

Harmanpreet then converted India's third PC of the match in the 19th minute to double the lead for India before Uthappa made it 3-0 in the 24th minute. Uthappa combined with Sunil brilliantly and open the Malaysian defence before hitting it hard towards the left corner of the goal box, giving no chance to the goalkeeper. India went into the half-time break with 3-0 lead.

In the third quarter, Akashdeep made a great run from the right and sliced the defence as well as goalkeeper to pass the ball towards Gurjant in front of an open goal-mouth. Gurjant then made no mistake to make it 4-0 for India.

The hero of the match Gurjant played his part in the fifth goal too. He made a brilliant solo run from India half on the left flank before releasing a decisive pass towards Sunil. Sunil dived in and tapped the ball inside the Malaysian goal to make it a commanding 5-0 after three quarters.

Earlier in the day, Korea and Pakistan played out a 1-1 draw in another Super 4s match. After two games each in Super 4s, India are on top with four points followed by Malaysia (three points), Korea (two points) and Pakistan (one point). As per the rule, the top two teams in the stage will play in the final and other two will vie for third place on Sunday.
