IPOH, Malaysia: World Champions Australia were held to a 1-1 draw by 13th-ranked Malaysia yesterday with both teams securing a place in Sunday’s final in the Sultan Azlan Shah Cup.
Australia tops the standings with Malaysia second, both on seven points each after three matches. The other competitors lag behind on three points after winning only one game.
Both went into yesterday’s match undefeated.
Earlier, India overcame their arch-rivals Pakistan 3-1 to chalk up their first win of the tournament.
A dominant Pakistan took the lead when Muhammad Waqas scored from a penalty corner rebound. But India, setting up their attacks from the flanks, scored two goals through Rupinder Pal Singh and Akashdeep Singh in a four-minute spell. AFP
