India Men’s hockey team qualify for Super four of Asia Cup 2022 after beating Indonesia 16-0
Indian Men’s hockey team completed a historic feat on Thursday as they thrashed Indonesia 16-0 to qualify for the Super Four stage of Asia Cup 2022. Earlier, the team coached by former skipper Sardar Singh had gone down against Japan 2-5, which left them on the verge of exiting the Asia Cup.
To keep their hopes of reaching the Super Four stage alive, India needed to win by a margin of 15-0 against Indonesia, and they were able to achieve the same, in an even impressive manner, to qualify from Pool A alongside Japan, as the expense of Pakistan.
After India’s qualification, Pakistan missed out on a berth in the upcoming Men’s Hockey World Cup.
