Watch video streaming of the India-Pakistan men's hockey Commonwealth Games match on the internet.

For live streaming of the eagerly awaited India v Pakistan men's hockey match at the 2010 Commonwealth Games, you need to watch the BBC's web coverage from Delhi.

The India-Pakistan rivalry may be at its fiercest in cricket, but hockey is also a hugely popular sport in the two countries.

When India and Pakistan meet this coming Sunday (10 October) you can expect a red-hot atmosphere. The match at the Major Dhyan Chand National Stadium begins at 2.30pm.

Pakistan will be keen to put the nightmare of this year's Hockey World Cup behind them, when they finished last. After that debacle, the coach and team officials were sacked and the entire team retired from international hockey.

Pakistan won the silver medal in Melbourne in 2006, losing to Australia, who have all three men's tournaments since hockey was introduced into the Commonwealth Games in 1998.

India meanwhile have a proud history of Olympic hockey success, winning eight golds - although the last was at the Moscow 1980 Olympics.

Indian hockey fans won't need to be reminded that Pakistan won Olympic gold in Los Angeles in 1984.
