Welcome to Sportstar’s HIGHLIGHTS of India vs China Asian Champions Trophy game at the Mayor Radhakrishnan Stadium in Chennai.

  • August 03, 2023 22:30
    Day 1 done

    That’s it from our side for the day. India begins its campaign with a resounding victory. Obviously, there’s scope for improvement but Fulton will be pleased with his team’s overall display.

    We’ll be back for the second day when India takes on Japan.

  • August 03, 2023 22:22
    Full Time: IND 7-2 CHN

    That’s the end of the game. Just one goal in the second half but a thumping win for the Craig Fulton’s side, nonetheless. Two goals each for Harmanpreet and Varun Kumar while Sukhjeet, Mandeep and Akashdeep added one.

    China will take heart from the two goals it scored. This was the highest-ranked team against the lowest ranked team. And if China can sound the board against India, it surely can against other teams.

  • August 03, 2023 22:20

    Harmanpreet Singh flicks and the keeper saves. The ball bounces off his glove and pops up. Another take for India.

    It is saved on the second take too. Weihao gets the block with his right leg.

    Sukhjeet’s pass from the left side of the circle hits a Chinese player’s foot. A penalty corner for India.

  • August 03, 2023 22:18

    Mandeep gets the ball on a break. He makes a move along with Akashdeep. The final touch, however, lobs the ball up into the air. The ball goes to Akashdeep who flicks at it mid air and the China keeper stops it with a dive.

  • August 03, 2023 22:15

    Mandeep Singh gets the ball on the baseline. He moves towards the centre and hits a reverse stick shot. Too much power sees the ball fly over the goal.

  • August 03, 2023 22:13

    Shamsher Singh gets into the circle with a spin. This releases him into space. He takes a shot but the connection is not the best and the ball rolls wide.

  • August 03, 2023 22:10

    SAVED ON THE LINE! Jarmanpreet saves the shot at the post. Waibao Ao was the drag flicker.

  • August 03, 2023 22:09

    Penalty corner for China. Sukhjeet Singh concedes it by hitting the ball over the baseline.

  • August 03, 2023 22:08

    India with the possession for the entirety of the first two minutes.

  • August 03, 2023 22:01
    End of Q3

    End of another dominant quarter for India. While India was the better team, it was a much improved, much stable display by China at the back.

    41’ IND 7-2 CHN - Mandeep Singh

    GOAL! Mandeep Singh with his first goal. India goes for a variation. Amit Rohidas flicks it wide of the goal and Mandeep gets down low to guide it home with a horizontal stick.

    China content with letting India see the ball. The side is just sitting back and closing out spaces.

  • August 03, 2023 21:43

    Shamsher wins a penalty corner for India.

  • August 03, 2023 21:11
