The Pakistani team beat arch-rivals India 12-10 thus earned their first victory in the San Luis World played at the Polo Club Estancia Grande. Those attending the game were witnesses to what appeared to be a World Cup final.

India came into this game with the potential to fight for first place and thus attempt to reach the final of the tournament but from Pakistan woth three straight losses did not want to leave the tournament without a win. Pakistan played a steady game throughout the afternoon, scoring goals in 5 of 6 chukkas, even when they had to change their player Raja Sami Ullah due to injury in minute 4:15 of the 4th who suffered a hard fall. Although he had to leave the playing field in an ambulance and be replaced by Bilal Haye (2), he was with his peers after the match celebrating a deserved victory, only had a bandage on one wrist.

India trailed off and failed to start a comeback that would have been heroic. With this defeat, India with only 1 win gets off the title fight.
