Azlan Shah cup: India look to keep winning streak vs Pakistan
Ipoh: India are looking to continue their recent domination against Asian Games gold medallists Pakistan when the arch-rivals clash in the Sultan Azlan Shah Cup tomorrow.
Defending champions India’s hopes of completing a hat-trick will hinge on winning the next two games, which now seems essential for advancing to the final after they squandered a two-goal lead to suffer a 2-3 defeat against South Korea in the opening outing.
India, who won the Azlan Shah Cup outright in 2009 and were joint champions with South Korea in 2010, go into Wednesday’s match with victories in the last four encounters against Pakistan.
After the reversal against South Korea, India have defeated top-placed Britain and hosts Malayisa, while the match against World champions Australia ended in a 1-1 draw.
