ISLAMABAD: Pakistan brushed off traditional rivals India 3-2 to finish seventh in the 20th Asian Senior Men’s Volleyball Championship at the Azadi Sports Complex in the Iranian capital of Tehran on Saturday.

Pakistan made a solid start to win the first two sets 25-23, 25-21, but could not continue the momentum and lost next two sets 20-25 and 19-25. However, they made an epic comeback in the fifth set, intensifying their attacks and defence to clinch it comprehensively 15-6.
