MALAYSIA: India on Friday pumped in three first-half goals to stun fancied Pakistan 3-1 and set up a summit clash with the archrivals in the final of the Genting Four-Nation Under-21 Hockey Tournament at the Taman Daya Stadium.

Playing firebrand hockey right from the start, the Indians scored through Pramod Kumar (1st min), Diwakar Ram (14th min) and Danish Mujtaba (19th min) to lead 3-0 at breather.

Pakistan reduced the margin in the 51st minute with a penalty corner strike by Muhammad Attique. The traditional rivals will feature in Sunday's summit clash at the same venue.

This was India's third convincing win in as many days. Earlier they had outplayed hosts Malaysia and then demolished Singapore.

For Pakistan, it was their first defeat of the tournament.

India pressurised the Pakistan defence from the opening minute. Skipper Diwakar Ram's crisp hit on the right flank was relayed by Mandip Antil for wily striker Pramod Kumar to connect past rival goalkeeper Imran Butt and give India lead.

The Pakistan defence were caught on the wrong foot as India mounted their raids with crafty stick-work and ball skills by Danish Mujtaba and Victo Singh.
