In Match 13 of Asian Men’s Hockey Champions Trophy, India, led by Manpreet Singh, beat South Korea at Sultan Qaboos Sports Complex in Muscat. India put up an impressive performance after the goalless draw against Malaysia on Tuesday. Meanwhile, India's drag-flicker Harmanpreet scores a hattrick and declared man of the match. Defending champions India were held to a goalless draw by Malaysia in a fast-paced round robin encounter of the Hero Asian Champions Trophy 2018. Both India and Asian Games Silver medallists Malaysia now have 10 points each from four outings in the preliminary round-robin league, with India topping the standings on the basis of a superior goal difference. The Indian team got off to a nervy start on Tuesday night and they wasted several scoring opportunities early in the match.
 
They had a spate of chances early in the contest, only for Hardik Singh to fritter away a scoring opportunity, Harmanpreet Singh's penalty corner flick being blocked by the Malaysian goalkeeper and Mandeep Singh failing to get a touch on long diagonal balls twice in the first quarter. Malaysia created one opening on a counter-attack but mostly fell back to defend their goal against the Indian strikers.
