Sharda Nand Tiwari (11′) added in the third goal for India from a penalty corner as India finished the first quarter with a 3-0 lead.

A minute later, Araijeet Singh Hundal (19′, 19′) scored twice in a row to further extend India’s lead and increase pressure on the opposition. At the stroke of halftime, Araijeet (30′) struck a powerful shot towards the bottom right corner of the nets to complete his hat-trick and extend India’s lead to 6-0.
