India doubled the advantage in a short period of time. Three minutes later, a second penalty corner resulted in the identical outcome thanks to Harmanpreet. Early in the match, China’s players found it difficult to get through the Indian defense because most of the action was occurring in their own half.

China didn’t get their first penalty corner until the 25th minute. While the first one failed, the subsequent corner allowed Gao to successfully shoot it past the goalkeeper Krishan Pathak.

Despite China‘s efforts to increase their intensity, they once again conceded a couple of penalty corners. In the 40th minute, Amit Rohidas attempted a wide flick, which was skillfully angled into the goal by Mandeep Singh, resulting in India’s seventh goal.
