It will also be a battle of two coaches and Indian fans will be disheartened to see Oltmans and Harendra in the opposite corner. The two masters coached Indian Junior team to the junior world cup title in 2016 but unfortunately they will not be in the same team anymore.

Key Players

India: Sardar Singh will be the key to India’s success in a high class encounter. He can calm the nerves of the youngsters and also act as a playmaker in the midfield. However, he is returning to the Indian team after he was not named in the CWG squad and pressure may mount on him.

Pakistan: The 2014 Hockey Champions trophy Silver medallist’s will be lead by Mohammad Rizwan Sr., who will be key to Pakistan’s success. His quick runs can prove lethal for the Indian defenders and the Pakistan’s goal scoring machine will be eager to make a mark.
