The Indian hockey team produced a superior performance as they outplayed arch rival Pakistan 3-1 in the U18 Asia Cup semifinal clash in Dhaka on Thursday.

The Indians made their intentions clear with an early strike to go 1-0 up and doubled the lead moments before half time.

Second half was no different as India continued their aggressive game and scored their third goal immediately.

Although Pakistan pegged one back with less than ten minutes before the final whistle, the young Indians held their ground efficiently to secure their berth for the summit clash.

Shivam Anand, Dilpreet Singh, Nilam Sanjeep Xess were the goal scorers for India, while Amjad Ali Khan netted the solitary goal for Pakistan.

In other semifinal, hosts Bangladesh demolished Chinese Taipei 6-1 at the Maulana Bhashani National Hockey Stadium and will take on India in the summit clash on Friday.
