Green shirts won the final match 2-1 to emerge unbeaten in the series after taking the first three games in Karachi and Faisalabad earlier this week by 3-0, 5-3 and 3-1.
Pakistan gained the early lead when Vice-captain Shakeel Abbasi made a field goal, Fareed Ahmed drew the second in the 26th minute, while China’s lone goal came in the 33rd minute when Dong Yang dodged Pakistan’s defence in the final moments of the first half.
Pakistan captain Muhammad Imran said. “We had a clear edge on China in the first two matches but they had a good come back in the last two and give us tough time.”
Asif Bajwa, the secretary of Pakistan Hockey Federation, said “They have proved that there is no security threat to any foreign team in Pakistan and sport is fully protected over here,” he said.
Pakistan, which last hosted an international major hockey event seven years ago, hopes the Chinese tour will help convince other foreign teams to visit.
