Second-placed Malaysia took their points tally to four after playing out a 1-1 draw against South Korea, who collected three points in total.

India have been clinical throughout their unbeaten run in the tournament. They beat Malaysia 6-2 in their second Super 4 match with a perfect display of attacking hockey. The Indian strikers toyed with the Malaysian defence with short passes, one-touch ball delivery to pump five beautiful field goals.

For Malaysia, who had looked impressive with an all-win record so far, it was their first loss in the event.


By virtue of the win, the Indians had also avenged their twin defeats — 0-1 in Azlan Shah Cup and 2-3 in Hockey World League Semi-finals in London — earlier this year.

On Sunday, India will look to continue their unbeaten run with victory in the final.
