In today’s second hockey match, four-time world champions Pakistan take on Malaysia in Bhubaneswar. 

This game is crucial for both the teams to enhance their chances to get a place in cross-overs and the winner of today’s match will surely finish in top 3 in Pool D of Hockey World Cup 2018. 

The only positive for Malaysia is their goalkeeper Kumar Subramaniam, who pulled off some stunning saves.
