Our men’s hockey team started the 2018 Commonwealth Games with a tight draw over traditional rivals Pakistan.
We drew 2-2. Dilpreet Singh and Harmanpreet Singh scored for us in the first half. Pakistan pulled one back in the 3rd quarter, before another goal in the dying stages ensured that the honours were shared..
The last CWG face-off happened in the 2010 Delhi edition. India won that contest 7-4. Before this game the tally stood at 1-1 (Pakistan won in 2006 in Melbourne). It remains the same
India’s hero was clearly goalie PR Sreejesh. The man made some fantastic saves to deny Pakistan any opportunity to dictate terms in the match. In fact we may have lost the game but for him.
