The final was taking place at the Wisma Belia Hockey Stadium, Malaysia and India started the match on a dominating note when Rupinder Pal Singh scored India’s first goal at the 18th minute followed by Affan Yousuf scoring India’s second goal just five minutes later.

Pakistan though was not going to give up on the title that easily and made a strong comeback in the second and third quarter to lessen India’s lead in the 26th minute with a goal by Aleem Bilal, and then an equalizer by Ali Shan in the 38th minute.

The defending champions India though had much more to lose than just the title in the match, especially looking at the ongoing diplomatic feud between the two countries.
