Dec 22, 2021 4:45 PM IST

Just little over 5 mins 

We have little over five minutes left in the final quarter. And India have a slender one-goal advantage. The third place match couldn't have been more exciting. Meanwhile, Pakistan have earned themselves a penalty corner.

Gursaahibjit Singh crosses it brilliantly as he makes the way despite being surrounded by two green sticks. Sumit does the rest of the work in front of the goal.

Dec 22, 2021 4:27 PM IST

Hardik on the move

Dec 22, 2021 3:55 PM IST

Drama in the final seconds

Pakistan's appeals for the penalty corner were denied after referee claims that they were too late in their referrals, and India immediately counter-attack. Whistle blows for a penalty corner and it ischecked whether the penalty corner was given before or after the first half hooter was sounded

Dec 22, 2021 3:51 PM IST

Second green card in the quarter as Yaqoob is suspended. Pakistan to finish the first half with ten men.

IND 1-1 PAK, 1st quarter

Dec 22, 2021 3:32 PM IST

India defending in numbers as quarter draws to close

Focus on maintaining the scoreline rather than searching for a late goal in the first quarter.

PC saved!

India make the counter but it is halted. Poor penalty corner from Pakistan.

Dec 22, 2021 3:31 PM IST

Dec 22, 2021 3:28 PM IST

Penalty corner for India; a little over four minutes remaining

Dec 22, 2021 3:24 PM IST

Pakistan score! IND 1-1 PAK

Dec 22, 2021 3:21 PM IST

India's relentless attack continues

Harmanpreet lofts the ball in the air for Shamsher to receive it marginally outside the striking circle. Shamsher drafts it in for Gurinder but the ball dodges past every Indian hockey stick inside the circle for a long corner. Pakistan eventually retrieve the ball back.

Dec 22, 2021 3:15 PM IST

GOAL! India lead 1-0
