The Indian team are celebrating on the pitch with the national flag.

Malaysia must be disappointed.

India left it a little too late.

They could have clinched the match in the 3rd quarter but too many misses in the Malaysian striking circle.

It's also the first win under new coach Sjoerd Marijne.

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.
