...
That's it from us here - this is Subhashish signing off - do join us tomorrow when Japan play Pakistan at 2025 IST and then also at 2040 IST when India play South Korea
...
THE MALAYSIANS WERE DOGGED IN DEFENCE (ANY SURPRISE, CONSIDERING WHO THE NEW COACH IS??) - JALIL FAIZ, IN PARTICULAR, DEFENDED TENACIOUSLY - OLTMANS STRESSED THAT SITTING BACK IN THEIR OWN TERRITORY WAS NOT THE INTENTION - BUT MALAYSIA DID THAT PRETTY WELL, IRRESPECTIVE.  THE INDIANS HAD THEIR CHANCES BUT TRIED TO FORCE THE PACE QUITE OFTEN  - AND HARENDRA'S UNIT TODAY, DID NOT RESEMBLE THE WELL-OILED MACHINE WHICH BEAT OMAN, PAKISTAN, AND JAPAN. THERE ARE CHINKS IN THE INDIAN ARMOR AHEAD OF THE WORLD CUP WHICH THEY WILL NEED TO AMEND URGENTLY
...
THE STATS LADIES AND GENTS - THE INDIANS ENJOYED 60% OF THE POSSESSION, ENTERED THE MALAYSIAN CIRCLE 22 TIMES, AND HAD 6 CRACKS ON GOAL - MALAYSIA ENTERED THE INDIAN CIRCLE JUST 7 TIMES AND MANAGED A SOLO CRACK GOALWARDS - MALAYSIA FAILED TO EARN A SINGLE PC - THE INDIANS EARNED THREE - FAILED TO MAKE THEM COUNT
...
THIS WAS SUPPOSED TO BE THE MATCH OF THE TOURNAMENT (OR THE POOL STAGES ANYWAY) - IT TURNS OUT TO BE AN ABSOLUTE ANTICLIMAX - A RATHER SCRAPPY AFFAIR FOR THE MOST PART - EXCEPT FOR THE FIRST QUARTER WHEN THE INDIANS LOOKED FLUENT AS EVER - POST THAT, HARENDRA'S BOYS LOOKED EDGY - WAS IT SIMPLY BECAUSE OF WHAT TRANSPIRED AT JAKARTA??  WHETHER OR NOT THAT WAS THE CASE, THE INDIANS HAVE FAILED TO SORT OUT MALAYSIA - WHICH IS WORRYING
...

HARMANPREET'S FLICK IS BLOCKED OFF BY THE MALAYSIAN RUNNER - THE PC IS WASTED
...
INDIA HAVE THEIR SECOND PC!!!! CAN THEY SCORE???
...
56' Great cross in for Malaysia - past the strikers and the Indian defenders - India have a PC at the other end!!! Malaysia refer
...
55' Amirol Arshad injured-  the Malaysians bruised in battle here

...
49' Both sides exerting tremendous pressure on the ball carrier - instead of going all out for a high press
...
48' Both sides playing safe in midfield - refusing to get drawn in
...
47' The Malaysians now do the same - the Indians intercept 
...
46' Great move from the Indians to start the final quarter - the Malaysian defence solid as ever
...
Both sides attacking predominantly from the right - the Malaysians unimaginative as ever - the Indians getting a bit further - but not being creative enough at the goalmouth
...
END OF Q3: INDIA 0 - MALAYSIA 0
...
44' The Malaysians unable to weave together any potent attacks - fail yet again
...
43' Both teams look a lot more purposeful now - but still cannot get the final passes right
...
41' The Indians attempt long hard cracks into the Malaysia circle - to no avail though
...
39' Jarmanpreet tries to find Akashdeep - who cannot reach the ball in time
...

...

...
32' Both teams giving possession away - the game is scrappy as ever
...

...
Four shots on goal, none for Malaysia - 13 circle entries for India and 4 for Malaysia - the Indians had a whopping 66% of the possession - no goals though
...
The level of hockey has not been particularly high - nor has it been as pleasing to the eye as one might have expected from the top two sides at Muscat- but all that may soon change
...
For all the possession they have enjoyed, and all the chances they have created, the Indians have been unable to find the back of the net. The Indians looked fluent in the first quarter - not so much in the second - both teams unable to find their rhythm thus far - the Indians look a bit edgy - will all that change in the second half??

...
