Overview

Pakistan take on Malaysia in their fifth game of the tournament of the Sultan Azlan Shah Cup on 13 April (Wednesday). The Men In Green come into this game knowing they no longer have any hopes in the title race after their humiliating 5-1 defeat at the hands of arch-rivals India on 12 April.

Their defending has always been a weak spot and it has hurt them throughout the competition. With not a lot to look forward too, Pakistan will be playing for pride and will look to get back to winning ways.

The hosts Malaysia also look like they blew their chances of a final berth drawing with Canada 2-2 on 12 April. In what has been a feature of the Sultan Azlan Shah Cup 2016, poor defending has come to hurt teams and it was no different for the hosts.

Coach Stephen van Huizen was not happy with his team and with Pakistan and India set to face them it will be a tough task. Malaysia currently sit in fifth place on the points table with five points from four games played.
