India, Korea, Aussies and Pakistan look to book the birth for finals

Saturday, May 15 
The most crucial and last day of league stage in Sultan Azlan Shah Cup 2010 at Ipoh, Malaysia. As the host Malaysia will be looking for upset from China, Korea beating Pakistan with the margin of less than 2 goals or getting thrashed with similar margin or draw between them or the least expected result of the day, i.e. Egypt holding/beating India. Since the chances of playing for them in finals depends heavily on these results. Hence the tournament wide open till the last match of league round.
1605 – Australia v China
Australia need a win from this match to keep their chances alive for the finals
1805 – South Korea v Pakistan 
Winner of this match will have same point as Aussies (if they win their match against China) and Malaysia, so finalist will be decided on the basis of the goal difference
2005 – India v Egypt
If India win this match they will play finals, not in the case of any other result whether it is a draw or upset for India.
