...
That's all for today. India will take on Belgium tomorrow at 10.15 am. Do join us for more live action. Until then, goodbye!
...
Pretty sublime by India, they will be reasonably happy with the result. Japan did their part, especially in the second half, but could not break through the Indian defence.

...
FULL TIME. India win by six goals to nil with all the goals coming in the first three quarters. The final quarter was a little bland, in comparison.
...
About one minute remaining in the match. Looks like India will be able to keep a clean sheet.
...
That was a good chance for Japan but Krishan snuffs out the danger.
...
The India U-19 cricket team, who are in New Zealand to take part in the ongoing ICC U-19 World Cup, are in the house to lend their support to the hockey team.
...
Just under seven minutes remaining in this match. Can India add to Japan's misery?
...
India are trying to get more goals here. Harjeet Singh plays a good pass to Ramandeep who can't quite keep it on target.
...
Japan are looking to get a consolation goal and take something from the match. But the Indians have been very disciplined in defence so far.
...
Japan get the fourth quarter underway.
...
And that's the end of the third quarter.
...
GOOOAAALLL! Fantastic finish by the debutant, Dilpreet, after Mandeep plays it through for him. That's the second goal for him, today. 

India, now, 6-0 up in the third quarter.
...
India concede yet another penalty corner but Japan fail to make it count. Debutant keeper Krishan makes a really good save there.
...
GOOOOAAAAALLLLLLL!!! 5-0, India! Ramandeep takes the penalty corner and Harmanpreet slots it in! Easy as that.
...
Penalty corner for India. Ramandeep stole the ball in the midfield and surged towards the Japanese goal. However, he was tripped inside the box. What can India come up with here?
...
The penalty corner is wasted as India manage to see out the danger. They have been solid in defence today.
...
Penalty-corner awarded to Japan after one of their forwards is tripped inside the box. Can they make it count?
...
PR Sreejesh is replaced by Krishan Bahadur Pathak as the coach Sjoerd Marijne gives the veteran 'keeper some much-needed rest.
...
We are halfway through the third quarter and India are showing no signs of slowing down. Meanwhile, the rain has stopped for the moment. 
...
GOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLL! 4-0 India! Dilpreet Singh gets on the scoreboard with a wonderfully taken goal. It's his first International goal. 

And, with that goal, the rain has just got heavier.
...
There was a half-chance there for India but the Japanese 'keeper made a very good save.
...
The second half gets underway. There is a light drizzle but that won't worry either team.
...
The referee blows the whistle to signal the end of the first half. India are completely dominating the proceedings. Their plans are working out and Japan haven't been able to get in their groove at all.

Stay tuned, we will be back with live action from the second half.
...
Just under one minute left for half-time. India have certainly tightened their grip on the match with that third goal.
...
GOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLL! What a debut this man is having!!! Vivek Sagar Prasad is at it again as he scores his second field goal on his debut!

3-0, India.
