17:45 hrs IST: Welcome to the Hockey World League Semi-final encounter between Pakistan and Argentina.

Pakistan were lucky to qualify for the knockout rounds of the Hockey World League semifinal. Canada did the green shirts a favour when they held Scotland to a 1-1 draw on Tuesday. Pakistan qualified as the fourth team from group B with just one win against the lowly Scots and three big defeats.

Pakistan lost to India 7-1, went down to The Netherlands 4-1 but the 6-0 rout in the hands of Canada was tragic.

The odds will be stacked heavily against 13th-ranked Pakistan when they step out on Thursday against world No. 1 Argentina.

India have upperhand

After winning their opening three matches of the competition against Scotland, Canada and Pakistan handsomely, India went down 1-3 to the Netherlands in their final Pool B game on Tuesday.

Malaysia, on the other hand, scored an astounding 5-1 win against China in their last Pool A match on Tuesday. In their previous matches, the Malaysians tasted success against Korea but lost their matches against Argentina and England.

Going into Thursday’s clash, higher-ranked India have the upper hand but Malaysia can be a ‘tricky opponent’. Not so long ago, at the 26th Sultan Azlan Shah Cup earlier this year, Malaysia denied India entry to the summit clash with a 1-0 win.
