Welcome to Sportstar’s live coverage of the Asian Champions Trophy 2023. We are live from the Mayor Radhakrishnan Stadium with Aashin Prasad bringing you the action.

  • August 06, 2023 22:15

    What a way to bounce back from the 1-1 draw against Japan. India took time to getting rolling but put on a show for the packed Mayor Radhakrishnan Stadium today. Karthi Selvam, Harmanpreet Singh, Hardik Singh, Jugraj Singh and Gurjant Singh were the scorers for India.

  • August 06, 2023 22:07
    IND 5-0 MAS - 4th quarter

    The floodgates have been opened! India gets a fifth goal. It’s again come from a penalty corner and Jugraj Singh finds his name on the score sheet. A drag flick packed with a punch straight into the net.

  • August 06, 2023 22:05
    IND 4-0 MAS - 4th quarter

    Shamsher Singh has another chance but his shot from the centre of the circle is saved.

  • August 06, 2023 22:04
    IND 4-0 MAS - 4th quarter

    Mandeep feeds a sitter for Gurjant. The forward slaps it to the far post from the left side of the circle. Gurjant is waiting for a tap in and makes no error.

  • August 06, 2023 22:01
    IND 3-0 MAS - 4th quarter

    The second PC also yields nothing for the home team after the first rusher squeezes out the space against Harmanpreet.

  • August 06, 2023 22:00
    IND 3-0 MAS - 4th quarter

    The first penalty corner for India in the quarter.

    Harmanpreet sends its wide and India cannot add a fourth.

  • August 06, 2023 21:45
    IND 3-0 MAS - 3rd quarter

    HARMANPREET SINGH! The India captain finally gets on the scoresheet. His drag flick is aimed at the right side of goal, takes a deflection of the post man’s stick and rattles the net.

  • August 06, 2023 21:43
    IND 2-0 MAS - 3rd quarter

    Gurjant now enters the circle from the right side and wins a short corner.

  • August 06, 2023 21:41
    IND 2-0 MAS - 3rd quarter

    Gurjant Singh is unmarked in the circle. But the Malaysia defence is quick in covering back. The India forward still manages to play a pass across the goal but not stick meets it.

  • August 06, 2023 21:36
    IND 2-0 MAS - 3rd quarter

    India concedes a goal via a penalty corner. The drag flick from the Malaysia player is deemed dangerous upon a referral as it passes India’s first rusher over his knee. The score stays 2-0!

  • August 06, 2023 21:34
    IND 2-0 MAS - 3rd quarter

    India strikes early in the second half. Harmanpreet Singh’s penalty corner is saved by Hafizuddin Othman. But the rebound falls kindly for Hardik who drags into the net.

  • August 06, 2023 21:19
    Half Time: IND 1-0 MAS

    It’s been one way traffic till now. But Craig Fulton would realise his side has not scored enough. That will be the priority when the second period begins. Sitting on a 1-0 lead, against the Speedy Tigers is never an option.

  • August 06, 2023 21:17
    IND 1-0 MAS - 2nd quarter

    A chance squandered by India at the very end. Vivek Sagar Prasad enters the circle with India on the counter. He has options to his left and right but decides to take on the defender. The Malaysian player does enough to not allow a straight forward shot and the chance goes begging.

  • August 06, 2023 21:15
    IND 1-0 MAS - 2nd quarter

    Chance! Akashdeep Singh tries a half-hearted shot at goal. But he is crowded out and too far from the goal to pose a challenge.

  • August 06, 2023 21:10
    IND 1-0 MAS - 2nd quarter

    Shamsher Singh’s injection to the circle is miscued. India is not even able to egt a shot let alone a drag flick.

  • August 06, 2023 21:10
    IND 1-0 MAS - 2nd quarter

    Karthi Selvam, with a dart into the circle from the right, wins a short corner for India.

  • August 06, 2023 21:05
    IND 1-0 MAS - 2nd quarter

  • August 06, 2023 21:01
    IND 1-0 MAS - 2nd quarter

    The second quarter gets underway.

  • August 06, 2023 20:57
    IND 1-0 MAS - 1st quarter

    Karthi Selvam gives the lead to India. A swipe from the edge of the circle in the closing seconds of the quarter. He traps a slap shot from Harmanpreet, takes it to his left and takes a shot.

  • August 06, 2023 20:48
    IND 0-0 MAS - 1st quarter

    Six minutes into the game, India controlling the pace. Malaysia did have a couple of entries into the circle but the home team has been untroubled.

  • August 06, 2023 20:45
    IND 0-0 MAS - 1st quarter

    IND vs MAS: Clash for top spot

    Loud cheers go around the stadium as the Indian team enters the pitch to go through their drills.

    The Indian team goes into a huddle before going on a jog around the pitch. It’s a must-win game for India after a disappointing draw against Japan on Friday.

    WhatsApp Image 2023-08-06 at 20.04.20.jpeg

  • August 06, 2023 19:58

    Points shared at the end of a six goal thriller. Not sure who would be happy with that point, probably Pakistan, but both teams would be disappointed at how they squandered their leads in the final half of the match.

  • August 06, 2023 19:56
    PAK 3-3 JAP - 4th quarter

    PAK 2-3 JAP - 4th quarter

    Pakistan wins the ball inside Japan’s half and spring a 4 v 4 counter attack with Hayat on the ball. He plays it to Liaqat on the right but is closed down but he manages to strike the foot of a defender. Pakistan gets a PC, Japan goes for the review and loses it. Decision stands.

  • August 06, 2023 19:35
    PAK 2-3 JAP - 3rd quarter

    GOAL! Japan takes the lead through Masaki Ohashi! The hooter went off before the ball sounded the board. Nagayoshi’s dragflick is deflected into the path of Masaki, who fired in the rebound. What a way for Japan to go into the interval between quarters. Pakistan would be deflated. Similar mistakes have crept in.

  • August 06, 2023 19:32
    PAK 2-2 JAP - 3rd quarter

    Another PC for Japan in this quarter and fifth in this 15 minutes of action. Pakistan calls for a review. Pak loses its referral.

  • August 06, 2023 19:26
    PAK 2-2 JAP - 3rd quarter

    Apart from the opening minute of the quarter, it’s been all Korea and has deservedly found the equaliser. Four minutes left.

  • August 06, 2023 19:24
    PAK 2-2 JAP - 3rd quarter

    Another ball from the right finds Kosei Kawabe but his effort is saved by keeper.

  • August 06, 2023 19:22
    PAK 2-2 JAP - 3rd quarter

    GOAL! Japan equalise and its Kato with the goal! Takuma Niwa with a superb run near the baseline before making a cutback to find Kato, who tomahawks it into the board!

  • August 06, 2023 19:19
    PAK 2-1 JAP - 3rd quarter

    This time Japan gets its penalty corner after Ryosei Kato’s run into the circle with the ball touches the foot of a Pakistani player. The ensuing PC strikes the foot of a defender. The second PC earns a third PC.... Another foot in the way. Akmal Hussain makes a save this time before the ball is cleared away.

  • August 06, 2023 19:14
    PAK 2-1 JAP - 3rd quarter

    Penalty corner appeals from Japan and it gets its way, Pakistan asks for a video referral. Pakistan overturns the decision after replay shows the ball struck a Japan’s Takuma Niwa’s foot first.

  • August 06, 2023 19:03
    PAK 2-1 JAP - Half-time

    Not a lot between the two teams here but Pakistan does have an extra oomph in attack. Pakistan has let its lead slip in its last game after taking the lead. Muhammad Saqlain would want his men to not repeat the same mistakes again.

  • August 06, 2023 19:01
    PAK 2-1 JAP - 2nd quarter

    Scintillating hockey from Pakistan. Shahid goes off on one from the right, plays in Rana, who turns towards goal and returns the pass into Shahid’s path in the circle. The attacker’s touch goes narrowly goes wide of goal. Earns a round of applause from the Chennai crowd.

  • August 06, 2023 19:00
    PAK 2-1 JAP - 2nd quarter

    GOAL! Muhammed Khan (15) scores! Finally! Just as I say he has been disappointing, Khan fires a short corner through the keeper’s legs! Khan has his arms stretched out skywards ala Shahid Afridi. A sense of relief for the youngster as his teammates engulf him.

  • August 06, 2023 18:55
    PAK 1-1 JAP - 2nd quarter

    Another penalty corner after Muhammed Khan (19) strikes the foot of a Korean defender.

  • August 06, 2023 18:49
    PAK 1-1 JAP - 2nd quarter

    First PC of the match goes to Pakistan. Muhammed Khan’s poor run from the short corner continues. He dragflicks with a great deal of power but is off target. Pakistan has failed to convert its 13 short corners in the tournament so far.

  • August 06, 2023 18:46
    PAK 1-1 JAP - 2nd quarter

    Pakistan comes out flying in the second quarter with Arshad Liaqat’s piercing run through the middle but his tomahawk effort gets a big deflection and goes over the goal.

  • August 06, 2023 18:41
    PAK 1-1 JAP - 1st quarter

    GOAL! Japan equalise in the 13th minute and it’s the skipper Seren Tanaka! Quick response from Japan. The ball is played into Nagai, who switches to the left, in the circle. Nagai tomahawks it into the edge of the goal where Tanaka has the simple task of deflecting it into the board.

  • August 06, 2023 18:37
    PAK 1-0 JAP - 1st quarter

    GOAL! PAKISTAN 1-0 in the 9th minute! Abdul Rana with the goal! Japanese defense all over the place with Muhammad Khan’s run into the circle. Khan couldn’t control the ball which saw Japanese keeper Yoshikawa rush out to clear it but it fell kindly for Rana to fire home.

    Korea in red gets things started from right to left.

  • August 06, 2023 17:26
    CHI 1-1 KOR - 4th quarter

    Jang nearly gets a second. The Korean skipper dragged it wide before firing it at the near post but Caiyu was alert to get his foot to it. Five minutes to go.

  • August 06, 2023 17:24
    CHI 1-1 KOR - 4th quarter

    Korea’s Lee Juyong fires a ball into the circle but it misses the stick of two Korean teammates with Kim Junghoo failing to connect on the slide.

  • August 06, 2023 17:12
    CHI 1-1 KOR - 3rd quarter

    We go level into the fourth quarter. China would be pleased with how they have played so far after having conceded 12 goals in the first two matches. They haven’t given Korea time on the ball inside their own half.

    CHI 1-1 KOR - 3rd quarter

    Shihao Du is found on the right but he is quickly closed down. Du goes for a cross-shot from outside the circle which goes harmlessly behind the goal. Four minutes left in the quarter.

    CHI 0-1 KOR - 2nd quarter

    Korea has largely enjoyed possession and hasn’t given much space to China to get behind them in defence. The hooter goes off for half-time. Korea will be happy but will want to kill the game with a couple of goals in the second half. Just the one penalty corner in the game so far. We will back in 10 minutes for the second period.

  • August 06, 2023 16:35
    CHI 0-1 KOR - 2nd quarter

    CHI 0-1 KOR - 2nd quarter

  • August 06, 2023 16:19

    Most of China’s attacking patterns have gone through the left side.

  • August 06, 2023 16:16
    CHI 0-0 KOR - 1st quarter

    China has started with more possession here. Korea plays a long ball to the right where Lee Hyeseung attempts a speculative shot at goal, which lacks the power. Caiyu Wang kicks it out.

  • August 06, 2023 16:10
    Match underway

    China tip off from right to left in their full red kit, while Korea is in blue.
