Internet Desk: India thrashed arch-rival Pakistan 4-0 in their third Super 4s match to make their way in the final of Asia Cup 2017. Though the Green Brigade had the most of the ball possession in the first –quarter, but Indian defenders played really well to stop the attacks of their opponent. Pakistan got two penalty corners in this span but they failed to capitalize on that. In the second quarter, the Men in Blue showed their attacking intent as unluckily Harmanpreet’s shot hit the bar and the rest of the quarter remained goal-less.

In the third quarter of the game, India put more pressure on their arch-rivals as Satbir Singh opened the deadlock on the 39th minute of the game. After that India tighten the grip in the game as Harmanpreet Singh scored a stunner on the 51st minute of the game to score his second. In a minutes time Lalit Upadhyay increased the lead to 3-0 in the 52nd minute. Gurjant Singh put the final nail on Pakistan’s coffin as he scored the fourth goal for the Men in Blue in the 57th minute of the match.

It’s the seventh time that India has reached the final of the Asia Cup.

The final is set to be held tomorrow in Dhaka, Bangladesh.
