That's it from us at Sportskeeda. Thanks for joining us. Till next time when India look to book their place in the final of the tournament.

...

Thus, India still don't know who they will face in the semis.

...

With rain disrupting play yesterday, Malaysia still have to play South Korea. The only other game that is left sees Pakistan face off against China.

...

India in spite of some nervy moments have been the best team in the tournament. 24 goals in 5 games and 13 points just goes to show how good they have been. 

...

That another 3 points for India which assures that they will go into the semis as the top team. 

...

They played the 11 minutes with 10 men after Surender Kumar got a yellow card as emotions got the better of him. But they stuck together and eked out this result.

...

That's a heck of a performance from Roelant Oltmans' boys. Another moment of pride in Indian hockey.

...

All over here at Kuantan. Chikte comes up big. Rupinder Pal Singh comes up big. India come up big.

...

AND INDIA HAVE WON IT!

...

Another Penalty corner that is straight at the goalkeeper.

...

CHIKTE!! WITH ANOTHER GREAT SAVE!

...

But now Malaysia have a huge Penalty corner.

...

Rupinder with a huge clearance. 

...

And India survive this time around.

...

Malaysia on the front foot. Throwing the kitchen sink.

...

Malaysia will go without a goalkeeper for the last 2 minutes and 11 seconds left.

...

Rupinder this time goes to the right of the goalkeeper and Kumar couldn't do anything this time.

...

10th goal for the defender in the tournament. WHAT A GAME! WHAT A GOAL!!

...

GOAAAAAAL!!! And Rupinder scores.

...

And the decision remains. It is a PC for India. Can they steal it at the death?

...

2 minutes and 17 seconds left on the clock.

...

However, Malaysia asks for a referral. They still have one.

...

And a PC for INDIA!

...

India survive to live another day. India need to play out another 3 minutes. That was stupid from Surender to put the team in this position.

...

WIDE! Horrible PC from Razie Rahim. Well wide of the post. 

...

4 minutes left.

...

Relentless pressure from the hosts and finally is paid off as the ball strikes Nikkin Thimmaiah's feet.

...

PC for Malaysia.

...

A dangerous ball from the top of the circle. Aiman had got himself free at the nearpost. However, no deflection on the shot. 

...

6 minutes left in the contest. India really have to dig deep with a man down.

...

But India lose their referral. The ball is deemed to have come off Najmi's stick.

...

However, India and Sardar Singh have asked for a referral asking if the ball had gone off the body of the defender.

...

A dangerous ball from India into the box but it was cleared.

...

CLOSE! From Malaysia. Fitri drills it in from the left. A deflection was there but not enough to force Chikte into action.

...

Action on the sidelines as Indian coach Roelant Oltmans is having a go at the refs from the his technical dugout.

...

MAN DOWN AGAIN! This time it's from the Malaysian side. Shahreel drills it but it's wayward and it strikes Haziq Shamsul on his hand.

...

But Ramandeep with an excellent run into the circle. But nothing doing as the Malaysians crowd him out.

...

10 minutes to go. And India have a real disadvantage.

...

He has been adjudged to have hit a Malaysian player in the face with his stick. And that means India will have to play the rest of the game with 10 men. 

...

That's a 15 minutes suspension.

...

And now a yellow card to Surender Kumar now. 

...

And the Malaysian have successfully overturned the decision. They keep the referral.

...

But the Malaysians have gone for a referral.

...

And we have our first BIG MOMENT in the fourth quarter. PC awarded to the Indians.

...

We are off in the 4th quarter.

...

And the hooter sounds. End of the third quarter.

...

Akashdeep with another moment of brilliance. But Malaysia clear it again.

...

Last 2 minutes of the first half left.

...

And the Kannadiga is going out of the game.

...

MAN DOWN!!  Nikkin Thimmaiah takes a nasty one on his hip as Birendra Lakra tries to hammer it in.
