In their third match of the round robin phase, Pakistan annihilated Oman 8-1 at the Hero Asian Champions Trophy Hockey Tournament at the Sultan Qaboos Sports Complex in Muscat, Oman.
Against the 33rd ranked hosts, the 13th ranked Pakistan scored four in each half with the Omani goal arriving in the last seconds of the match via their third penalty corner of the evening.
Five of Pakistan’s goals came off penalty corners where Aleem Bilal shone with three conversions.
Oman had their best spell in the third quarter when through swift turn overs they entered the Pakistani circle quite a few times and created chances including two penalty corners. But they were let down by poor finishing.
Pakistan now has two wins and one loss.
