Watch Indian hockey team's six-goal Diwali dhamaka for fans

Indian team with Hero Asia Cup 2017.

With goals from Satbir, Harmanpreet, Lalit and Gurjant, India once again beat Pakistan and moved into the Asia Cup final. Sardar Singh, in particular, was phenomenal with his striding forward, he combined with Sumit at times to scare the opponent's backline and get the ball back of the nets for India.

Goals by Ramandeep Singh (3rd minute) and Lalit Upadhyay (29th) clinched the series for India. Sunil Sowmapreet darted into the circle from the right flank to release a fierce push for Ramandeep Singh, who hit the board with his second attempt after the Malaysian goalkeeper had blocked the initial hit.

For Malaysia, it was their best result in the tournament. Malaysia took advantage of the same as they came back hard in the fourth quarter scoring a field goal in the 50th minute via Shahril Saabah as the Indian defence failed to stop the Malaysian attackers.

But the Indian defence were equal to the task and did well enough to hold onto their slender lead.

In the recent encounters between the two sides, India have had the upper hand over their traditional rivals, and the Manpreet Singh-led side would look to continue their stranglehold over the neighboring country.

"That team was China, who take the ticket to Bhubaneswar, India courtesy of their eighth place finish in the World League Semi-Final in London", FIH said in a statement.

"Playing in this way, and in this order, helps us protect the sporting principles of the Asian Cup final qualifying round".
