With the Malaysian Hockey Confederation sleeping on the job, we had to wait for end of matches to get the full results from journalists leaving the Media Centre where we have no access. Here are the results for the day:
Stories and updates will be published upon receiving them from the Organising Committee. This has come about as a result of changing the Media Officer in the middle of the tournament. We will also advice on new twitter account upon receiving notification. Until then please check out @SatwantDhaliwal who is doing live commentary on the games. Results will be updated immediately after the games by a fan from the stands. We hope you bear with us and will try our best to keep you up to date.
