India beat Pakistan 3-2 in the finals of Asian Champions Trophy 2016 held in Malaysia. Here are 3 things that we learned from India’s Triumph in Asian Champions Trophy 2016.
India’s second half woes continue
We became familiar with this trend during Rio Olympics 2016. Taking a lead at the first half and giving it all away in the second. Well, almost something similar happened in this finals as well. India, after scoring a couple of goals in the first half, gave away 2 goals and helped themselves to a tense finish. However, with nine minutes to go, Nikkin Thimmaiah scored a match winner and prevented a shoot-out. Shoot out would’ve been anybody’s game and would’ve brought us memories of 2007 T20 Cricket World cup when India beat Pakistan in bowl-outs.
