India defeated arch-rivals Pakistan 3-1 to finish top of Pool A in the ongoing Asia Cup Hockey 2017 tournament at the Maulana Bhashani National Hockey Stadium on Sunday.

Goals from Chinglensana Singh (17'), Ramandeep Singh (44') and Harmanpreet Singh (45') ensured the top spot in Pool A for India.

Former India cricketer VVS Laxman took to twitter and said: "Wonderful effort from @TheHockeyIndia to beat Pakistan 3-1 in Asia Cup Hockey".

However, Pakistan progressed to the "Super 4s" stage with four points on the basis of a better goal difference.

After the two easy wins against Japan (5-1) and hosts Bangladesh (7-0), as expected India had a relatively tough outing against Pakistan but managed to maintain their all-win record.

Pakistan also could not make the most of their opportunities as India continued to dominate possession.
