60 - FULL TIME! INDIA WIN THE HOCKEY ASIA CUP 2017, as the hooter goes off, signalling the end of play. Malaysia threw everything at them. They came oh, so close to scoring the equaliser, but India held on for dear life in the end, to win it.

18:36 (IST)22 OCT 2017

59 - Malaysia look for a PC, as Tengku asks for a review for a deliberate block. There was an Indian foot, but it was outside, and there was no deliberate intention to block it. Hence, Malaysia get a free hit outside the D, and lose their review.

18:23 (IST)22 OCT 2017

50 - GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLL!!!! Shabaah pulls one back for Malaysia! Tengku plays it in to Faizal on the right, who crosses it in. The cross is kicked away by keeper Chikte, but Shabaah gets the rebound, and turns it in! India's lead has been reduced to 2-1! India reviewed that goal, looking for a stick check by Faizal on Harmanpreet, but the review does not go their way. They lose their review.

18:18 (IST)22 OCT 2017

17:51 (IST)22 OCT 2017

30 - Half Time! And with that, the hooter goes for half time, with India scoring either side of the quarter break in the first half. On merit, the two sides have been more-or-less even, but India have been clinical in front of goal, as they took the 2-0 lead. Malaysia have khogged the majority of the ball, but they have not been able to show much for it. Even with 57% possession of the ball and 7 circle entries, Malaysia have not been able to register a single shot on target.

17:48 (IST)22 OCT 2017

29- GOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!!!! Lalit makes it 2-0 India!

17:37 (IST)22 OCT 2017

19 - Chance! Malaysia attack from the left wing, and they fizz in a cross across goal. Faizal was waiting, unmarked at the far post, but it missed him and rolled out of play. That was a golden chance for Malaysia to equalise.

17:34 (IST)22 OCT 2017

16 - Both Malaysia and India are trying to play the fast paced game, as the ball ping pongs from one end to the other. However, this fast game is also leading to a few mistakes.

17:32 (IST)22 OCT 2017

15 - End of 1st Quarter! That has been a lively quarter, as both the sides have shown good intent to score. Malaysia has been the dominant force in the quarter, with 57% possession, and have made 5 circle entries, as compared to India's 4. However, India have the lead, after an early goal.

17:29 (IST)22 OCT 2017
