Stat Attack India’s good run since 2010 versus Pakistan’s overall dominance

Stat Attack India’s good run since 2010 versus Pakistan’s overall dominance

India equaled their best ever performance against Pakistan in global hockey with a 7-1 victory in the Hockey World League Semi-finals on Sunday - a result that highlighted the gulf that now exists between the two rivals.

The performance of India's forward-line has been outstanding with the likes of Ramandeep Singh, Akashdeep Singh and Talwinder Singh showcasing their brilliance with the stick by scoring some fantastic goals.

Having won all of their previous three matches, India now not only comfortably sits on top of Pool B but has also qualified for the quarter-finals.

India may well have suffered a 180-rout at the hands of Pakistan in the Champions Trophy cricket final but they came out on tops on the other side of London - in field hockey.

Any sporting match between India and Pakistan is fraught with tension and there are a lot of political undercurrents to it.

Scorers for Canada: Scott Tupper slammed in through penalty stroke conversion while John Smythe scored two consecutive goals in the 19th and 27th minute through penalty corner conversion.

With this resounding win over arch- rivals Pakistan, India has now won three games on the trot.

India captain Manpreet Singh feels the team is improving rapidly in penalty corner conversion.

As the match progressed, India started to control the proceedings with Pakistan playing a catch-up game.

After Pakistan wasted two chances in quick succession, Talwinder scored his second of the day.

One suspect held in London mosque attack
Witness Abdiqadir Warra told AFP the van "drove at people" and some of the victims were carried for several metres along the road. That incident came just a week after the Manchester Arena attack, which killed 22 and left more than 100 injured.

Akashdeep made it 5-0 in the 47th minute and Pradeep Mor added a sixth in the 49th minute.

Indian players continued to dominate the game in the second half as well and Harmanpreet scored his second goal in the 33rd minute. It was tactical brilliance by Mandeep Singh who passed to Satbir Singh from the top of the circle who then flicked it to Sunil who nicked it to Talwinder who deflected the ball into the post - all in rapid pace leaving Pakistani defenders dumbstruck.

India secured another penalty corner four minutes into the second quarter but Harmanpreet's flick was saved by Amjad Ali in front of Pakistan goal.
