The stats ladies and gentleman - 22 shots on goal for India off 48 circle entries as opposed to 2 shots on goals for the Russians who managed 7 circle entries.

Nine PCs for the Indians who converted four with Harmanpreet scoring a brace while Varun and Amit scored one apiece

Sixty-six percent possession for Graham Reid's boys who looked clinical for the most part
...
The Russians looked to be in the contest in the first quarter and very nearly scored the opening goal of the contest against the run of play but Nilakanta Sharma's goal seemed to put the breaks on the Russians who lost the plot completely after two quick goals from Simranjeet and Amit Rohidas.

The Indians led 3-0 at half-time but should have scored a few more - Harmanpreet's flick hit the post as early as the third minute but the stocky drag-flicker found the back of the net immediately after half-time and the flood gates opened up completely for the Indians who went on the rampage.

Nilakanta Sharma had an outstanding evening on the pitch while comeback-man Ramandeep looked fit and sharp
