16:30 IST: Hello and Welcome to the live updates of the Champions Trophy match between India and arch-rivals Pakistan.
Over the past year, India had enjoyed convincing victories over their nemesis right from the Asian Champions Trophy in 2016 when they had beaten Pakistan in the final. This was followed by a double victory in the Hockey World League semi-final in London 2017 and the Asia Cup in Dhaka where India lifted the title after 10 years. But at the recent XXI Commonwealth Games, Pakistan held India to a draw.
Chief Coach Harendra Singh, who took over the post recently, put things in perspective. “Getting off to a winning start is vital because it sets the momentum for the rest of the tournament. There will be no room for emotions when we take on Pakistan. The team will play against them like any other team where we go for the three points,” Hockey India quoted him as saying.
