Karachi, Oct 22 : Pakistan hockey captain Zeeshan Ashraf has vowed to avenge their defeat against India in the recently-concluded Commonwealth Games when the two arch-rivals meet for the third time this year in next month's Asian Games at Guangzhou, China.

Pakistan were unable to counter India's speed and accuracy in their Commonwealth Games clash in New Delhi, losing 4-7 in a highly-charged atmosphere. In a similar result, India had beaten Pakistan in their World Cup clash at the same Major Dhyan Chand venue last March.

Pakistan and India will meet in a crucial Pool B contest of the Asian Games hockey event on November 20 and Zeeshan hopes to make the clash against the old rivals in Guangzhou a memorable one.If Pakistan win the gold medal, they will secure an Olympic berth but for the skipper, national pride will be above anything else.PTI
