Indian team getting the medals here.

Pakistan presented with the runners up medals. A praiseworthy performance from them in this game and throughout the tournament. Reaching the final is a good result for them. 

...

Best Player of the Tournament - Rupinder Pal Singh

...

Highest goalscorer - Rupinder Pal Singh

...

Player of the Final - Sardar Singh

Quite rightly so. He has stepped up when his team needed him the most. 

...

A lot of chatter from the Indian players here and rightly so. They would be satisfied with winning a trophy. 

...

Pakistan, once more, were superb and the difference in their international rankings did not reflect during the game. They stuck to their guns and the coach is still talking to his plays. Oltmans, on the other hand, shares a moment full of smiles with Sardar. 

...

Indian players interacting with the fans here and Uthappa roaming around with a selfie stick. Such are modern times when you have to run for an hour but cannot forget to click a selfie. The presentation is about begin. 

...

Sardar - It is always good to beat Pakistan and I am very proud. 

...

Uthappa - We are not too happy with the performance today but in the end it is the win that matters. 

...

Nikkin - "Feels great to score the goal. I was lucky enough to score the winning goal. This is a team effort and we are very proud."

...

Pakistan coach with some really nice words there. 

...

A huge victory from India and they are deserving winners of the Asian Champions Trophy. They have been the best team by quite some distance. Pakistan have done a good job and can be proud of their performance. They ran India quite close in a contest that could have gone either way. 

...

India have won the 2016 Men's Asian Champions Trophy and it is Nikkin Thimmiah's winner that has done the job for India. This has been a pulsating contest but India have managed to come out on top here. 

...

India 3-2 Pakistan FULL TIME 

...

Q4 15' India 3-2 Pakistan - Can India hold on? Sreejesh is shouting instructions from the sidelines. Pakistan have the ball and attack. They only win a free hit. A long pass hands the ball to Chinglesana. COUNTER ATTACK and India almost score. Great defending from Pakistan. India win a long corner. Is this it?

...

Q4 13' India 3-2 Pakistan - CHANCE for KHAN but he cannot put it in. Great ball played in from the wing but no one is there to put it inside the goal. The attacking now coming from Pakistan. Over two minutes remain in the game. 

...

Q4 12' India 3-2 Pakistan - India play an aerial ball but it goes to Pakistan, who, in turn, concede a free hit. Horrible mistakes from Pakistan there. India are rotating the ball around. Pardeep gets the ball on the wing but he gives it away with a foul. 

...

Q4 10' India 3-2 Pakistan - Sardar gives the ball away but India survive through the some good cover up defending. That could have been costly for India. Pakistan win a free hit but it is useless as they cannot control the ball well. 

...

Q4 9' India 3-2 Pakistan - Pakistan win a penalty corner as the ball hits Lakra's foot in the circle. Can they bounce back? Bilal lurking. POOOORRR. They miss the chance. That could be a massive miss from Pakistan. 

...

Q4 8' India 3-2 Pakistan - Now it is Pakistan's turn to take control. Nikkin is injured and getting treatment on the sidelines. Pakistan play a few long passes and breach the Indian circle but it goes out. Rupinder with a rare strayed pass that hands back possession to Pakistan. They need to create an attack or this game will go from their hand. 

...

Q4 6' India 3-2 Pakistan - What a lovely finish from Nikkin there but Sardar and Akashdeep key there. This is a beautiful piece of hockey from India. 

...

Q4 6' India 3-2 Pakistan - Lakra turns away and then tries to turn the ball in. India win a long corner. Sardar to Pardeep, he passes to Uthappa, who shows great skill but it is a corner. India really attacking. SAVE from the Pakistani goal keeper. Nikkin almost there. Pakistan survive but not this time GOOOOOOOOAALLLLLLLL NIKKKINNN scores 

...

Q4 4' India 2-2 Pakistan - From what it looks like, Pakistan have decided to play this contest on the counter and are happy to sit back. India need to take control of this game. Sardar wins the ball but there are so many men behind already, he cannot do anything. This is a great setup by Pakistan. 

...

Q4 2' India 2-2 Pakistan - Pakistan start the final quarter and what else, it is an aerial ball. They are sticking to their guns and India need to do something. A long hit tried by India is blocked well. Pakistan's midfield has stifled the one of their opponents. This is great tactics from the Men in Green. Sardar gets some space and threads a beautiful through pass but Uthappa's run cannot be converted. Pakistan survive. 

...

India 2-2 Pakistan with one quarter remaining. Can either team score or we will have a shootout? Let's see. This is turning out to be a cracker.

...

Q3 15' India 2-2 Pakistan - Sardar wins the ball in the midfield and tries to make a run but Pakistan win the ball back. they attack towards the end but the quarter ends. 

...

Q3 14' India 2-2 Pakistan - If Pakistan can go into the final quarter with scores level or in front, they would be really happy. India have lost the ball quite a few times here. Poor control from Chinglesana. Sardar has not been visible in the third quarter. Pakistan win a free hit and a minute remains. 

...

Q3 13' India 2-2 Pakistan - Rupinder starts play from the back and switch sides with some excellent passes. They have been forced to play long passes due to Pakistan's shape. 

...

Q3 11' India 2-2 Pakistan - India seem to be nervous now and there is a sense of urgency in their game. Chingelsana loses the ball again. Pakistan's strategy of playing deep has worked for them and they are now on top. The curse of the third quarter is haunting India again. 

...

Q3 9' India 2-2 Pakistan - INDIA SCOREEEEEEEE RAMANDEEEP. Hang On. This call is referred by the umpire. Ramandeep has claimed a touch from Kothajit's ball but the umpire refers it upstairs. This is a crucial call. NO GOALL. We are still level. Right decision. 

...

Q3 8' India 2-2 Pakistan - CHANCE for India, yet another aerial pass by Pakistan falls to Rupinder, who passes it to Ramandeep but cannot direct it to Talwinder. Pakistan survive. They win a corner on the other end. SHAH SCORESSSSS GOAAAALLLLLL Pakistan are level. A piece of poor control by Rupinder leads to the ball falling to Shah and he scores. 

...

Q3 6' India 2-1 Pakistan - There is no problem for India if they slow down the pace of the game because Pakistan are not looking particularly attacking. No clear cut chance in the third quarter till now. 

...

Q3 4' India 2-1 Pakistan - A lot of aerial balls being played by Pakistan and they are losing the ball again and again. India have gained possession but it is a scratchy period of play at the moment. No team has been able to take an initiative. 

...

Q3 2' India 2-1 Pakistan - Pakistan get us underway in the second half and after a pass to the back. It is again an aerial ball. They hand the ball back to India. Another aerial ball from Pakistan. Looks like they are going to be doing that only. 

...

The second half is set to begin. 

...

India will be looking to continue this momentum and due to Pakistan's shape, would want to win a lot more penalty corners. In my opinion, they wasted a penalty corner by giving it to Jasjit. There is a reason why Rupinder is deadly. Pakistan, on the other hand, should try a little more than those aerial balls. The ball is not being given to Aleem Bilal enough. This promises to be a cracking second half. 

...

We will be back with the second half shortly. 

...

This has been a lively half of hockey here from India and Pakistan both. Just when it looked that India would seal the game with 2 goals. Pakistan bounced back with a stunning drag flick from Aleem Bilal, who draws level with his Indian counter part Rupinder. 

...

HALF TIME India 2-1 Pakistan 

...

Q2 15' India 2-1 Pakistan - Two minutes to go before half time and India try to attack. Nice string of passes. Sardar tries a through ball but loses it. Last minute of the first half sees Rupinder attempt a long ball from his half and hands it back to Pakistan, who attempt an aerial pass. HALF TIME.

...

Q2 13' India 2-1 Pakistan - Jasjit mistimes an aerial pass and hands the ball to Pakistan, who try to attack but lose the ball. Pardeep makes a superb run and puts the ball inside. Nikkin gets the ball and hits the ball with a lot of venom on the reverse. It goes high. He should have passed to Affan though. 

...

Q2 12' India 2-1 Pakistan - That was a marvellous drag flick from Aleem and Akash Chikte had no clue. Pakistan make full use of the one-man advantage and come right back in the contest. This game is still alive. The fireworks are beginning.

...

Q2 11' India 2-1 Pakistan - This game has come alive and a bit of bad news for India as Walmiki gets a Green Card and is sent off for two minutes. Pakistan have a lot of time to get this game back whereas India can score one more to put things to bed. Pakistan attack and Umar is taken down by Kothajit. PENALTY CORNER to Pakistan. Bilal lurks and GOOOOALLLLLL What a ripper from ALEEM 

...

Q2 9' India 2-0 Pakistan - Sardar SINGH YOU BEAUTY. Top class long pass from Sardar and Ramandeep turns it in to give the ball to AFFAN, who makes no mistake. The pressure is on Pakistan now and they do not seem to have any answer. 

...

Q2 8' India 2-0 Pakistan - The Indian team is oozing with confidence now and they are looking to put a screw on this game. The ball control is much better and they are dominating possession. Pakistan, still, are sitting back. Sardar to Ramandeep to AFFFAAANNNNNNNNN GGOOOOOOOOAALLLLLLLLLL 

...

Q2 6' India 1-0 Pakistan - The goal has infused a much needed sense of energy into the game and India are passing the ball much better. Akashdeep loses the ball in the midfield. Pakistan try to play a long pass but it is of no use. India attack on the counter and Talwinder with a stunning reverse shot but it is wide. 

...

Q2 4' India 1-0 Pakistan - WOW!!!This goal has managed to evoke an emotion from Oltmans as well. STUNNING drag flick by Rupinder who makes use of a superb injection by Ramandeep and smashes it past the Pakistani goalkeeper. India lead and they are confident now. 

...

Q2 3' India 1-0 Pakistan - India are keeping a bit more of the ball but Pakistan's shape has prevented them from working the ball in the circle. Nikkin and Pardeep try to breach the Pakistan circle. PENALTY CORNER for India. Ramandeep injects and RUPINDER GOOOOOOOAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLLL
