Match 16: 5th December 2018 at 7:00 PM IST
Four times World champions Pakistan would come out to register their win in the Men’s Hockey World Cup 2018 when they meet Malaysia on Wednesday. They suffered a defeat at the hands of Germany in their tournament opener, going down 1-0. However, there were some encouraging individual performances from the side that will boost the team morale ahead of the fixture.
Malaysia, on the other hand, would come out to salvage pride on Wednesday after 7-0 mauling at the hands of Netherlands in their opener. The Malaysian side has never got better of Pakistan in the World Cup and for them to pull off a win here, a level-up performance is the need of the hour.
