Hong Kong increase their lead to three after 9 minutes. But they haven't been able to go on an extended run just yet.
With just over six minutes done in this encounter, Hong Kong have a slender 7-6 lead.
Just as I say that, Hong Kong race to a 7-4 but it doesn't take India long to bounce back and cut that deficit down to just one.
It has been fairly routine so far and no side has really been able to go on a run, either with some stellar defence or some impressive spikes.
India serve and get off the mark immediately courtesy of a fault from Hong Kong but they do well to immediately bounce back take a 2-1 lead.
We are just minutes away from the start of the clash between India and Hong Kong.
