For India, Rupinder Pal Singh has been in scintillating form, almost scoring at will from penalty corners.
However, Pakistan has also shown gumption to fight as they beat came from behind to defeat Malaysia in the semi-final.
India won the Asian Champions Trophy in 2011, while Pakistan won it in 2012 and 2013. In 2014 and 2015 the tournament was not held.
But, there have been no problems when it comes to their offensive display. Not only have they been amazing in the penalty corners with Rupinder Pal Singh at his menacing best, but regular field goals from Akashdeep Singh, Ramandeep Singh have been joy to watch so far. They will hope to continue that impressive form in the final as well.
Pakistan will depend on their solid players like Muhameed Aleen Bilal, who will be one of their key goal-scorers. With other players like Irfan Jnr and Muhammad Rizwan Sr, they are going to be a huge threat in the competition. They are historically a strong team, and will be hell bent to come up with some great hockey to defeat favourites India.
In order to win the title, Pakistan will also need their goalkeeper Imran Butt to shoulder responsibility, and have a great game under the bar. India for sure, will play an attacking hockey and Butt will be kept busy during the final.
Though both teams might be confident of clinching the title, there is always an additional pressure when it comes to final. This title-decider is no ordinary as arch-rivals India and Pakistan will be battling it out with the hope of winning yet another Asian Champions Trophy title. Pakistan have won the competition twice, while India are searching for their second ACT title.
