The following is the table of points drawn at the end of all matches in a six-nation Hockey tournament, in which each country played with every other country exactly once. The table gives the positions of the countries in terms of their respective total points scored(i.e., in the decreasing order of their total points). Each win was worth three points, each draw one point, and there were no points for a loss. Some information in the table has been intentionally left out. The results of none of the individual matches are known, except that Pakistan beat India and no two teams finished with the same number of points.

$$\begin{array}{|c|c|c|}\hline \text{Position}&\text{Country}&\text{Won}&\text{Drawn}&\text{Lost}&\text{Goals For}&\text{Goals Against}&\text{Total Points}\\\hline 1& \text{Australia}&&&&17&5&15\\\hline 2&\text{Netherlands}&&&&9&6&10\\\hline 3& \text{Pakistan}&&&&&2&8\\\hline 4&\text{India}&&&&2&5&\\\hline 5&\text{South Korea}&&&&7&11&2\\\hline 6& \text{Spain}&&&&8&16&\\\hline\end{array}$$
