Harmanpreet Singh successfully converted a pair of penalty corners in the 15th and 23rd minutes, while Jugraj Singh found the net from a set piece in the 36th minute. The fourth and final goal for India was scored by Akashdeep Singh from a field play in the 55th minute. This outcome led to India taking the lead in the standings with a total of 13 points, achieved through four victories and one draw.

Pakistan’s tournament journey ended in disappointment due to their elimination based on goal difference, even though they concluded with the same five-point tally as Korea and Japan. Looking ahead, India is set to face Japan in the upcoming semifinal on Friday, while Malaysia is poised to compete against Korea.
