Mumbai, Oct 17 (IANS) A minor Chinese incursion was good enough to deprive hosts India a clean sweep of team gold medals at the India Junior and Cadet Open with the visitors making short work of India A in the junior girls to take gold in the $8,000 event at the NSCI Stadium here Thursday.

Two unranked Chinese — Yanmei Yang and Anqi Li — surprised India A’s Manika Batra and Suthirtha Mukherjee, ranked No.30 and No.60, respectively, to win the final 3-1.
