Indian men’s scored 15 goals through  Gurwinder Singh Chandi (FG10th Minute, FG21, FG40), Sardar Singh (FG11), Shivendra Singh (FG18, FG30), Danish Mujtaba (PC25,FG52), Tushar Khandkar (FG42), Sandeep Singh(PC47),  SK Uthappa (PC48), Yuvraj Walmiki (FG53), SV Sunil (FG54, FG57) and Birendra Lakra (FG70), while Singapore registered on score board through Enrico Marican (FG39). Clearly India dominated the game, but Singapore pulled off some nice saves, specially in Penalty Corners.

Indian women’s team slow in start, the first half saw a under-standard performance by Indian eves, but when they came out with loaded ammunition in second half, could only manage to level the score through Yendala Soundarya in 42nd minute. Some contraversial decision by umpires made sure that Ukraine escaped with the one point from the match after taking the lead in 26th through captain Maryna Vynohradova in penalty corner.
