A lacklustre India suffered a 1-2 defeat at the hands of arch-rivals Pakistan in their much-anticipated group match of men’s hockey event at the 12th South Asian Games (SAG) held in Guwahiti on Monday. Muhammad Arslan Qadir scored both the goals for Pakistan in the 11th and 37th minutes while Indian captain Mandeep Antil pulled one back in the 55th minute of the match at the Moullana Tyabulla Stadium, the Press Trust of India reported. The much-awaited match of the Games played between second string sides of the two countries did not rise to any heights as there were few very goal-scoring chances.
