Junior Asia Cup: India thrash China 10-0

Karachi:

Penalty corner expert Sandeep Singh and captain Sandeep Michael scored hat-tricks as reigning world champions India opened their Junior Asia Cup campaign with a 10-0 rout of China here today. Sandeep Singh hit the board with immaculate conversions of short corners in the 12th, 25th and 42nd minute as India vie for one of the three places up for grab in next year's Junior World Cup in Amstelveen, the Netherlands. Michael netted field goals in the ninth, 49th and 69th minute as India completely dominated the full duration of the match. India won the world junior title in Hobart, Australia in 2001 and are one of the three favourites alongside hosts Pakistan and South Korea to win the event. (PTI)
