India vs Pakistan, Asian Champions Trophy, Final Live Updates: Chinglensana Singh in action during a hockey match

Indian and Pakistan were declared as the joint winners of the 5th Men's Hero Asian Champions Trophy Muscat 2018 hockey tournament after the final was abandoned due to bad weather conditions in Muscat on Sunday. India were looking to defend their title which they won back in Kuantan, Malaysia in 2016 when they beat arch-rivals Pakistan 3-2 in the Final. However, the weather conditions here played spoilsport as heavy rainfall made it difficult for both the teams to start the Final here at the Sultan Qaboos Sports Complex. World No. 5 India had earlier secured their passage through to the Final of the 5th Men's Hero Asian Champions Trophy Muscat 2018 after remaining undefeated in the competition with five wins and a draw in their six matches; defeating hosts Oman 11-0, Pakistan 3-1, Japan 9-0, drawing 0-0 against Malaysia, and South Korea 4-1 in the round robin stages; whereas beating Japan again with a margin of 3-2 in the Semi-Final. The Indian team were also the highest scoring team in the competition as they scored a total of 30 goals in six matches. The tally consists of 11 different goal-scorers. India's Harmanpreet Singh scored the most goals for his team with six goals, while forwards Mandeep Singh and Dilpreet Singh scored five each. Earlier on Sunday, it was Malaysia who finished at the third place as they defeated Japan 3-2 in Penalty Shootout after the scores remained 2-2 at the end of regulation time in the bronze medal match.
