Hockey: India Beat Bangladesh, Clinch Series 3-0
Continuing its dominating performance, Indian men's hockey defeated Bangladesh 3-1 in the third and final match to clean sweep the series 3-0 in Dhaka today.
India started the match with their attacking game and achieved their first goal in sixth minute through forward Yuvraj Walmiki. After the early success, India tried to create more opportunities in the first half but Bangladeshi defenders managed to restrict the Indian attack.
In the second half, India came back with a better plan and managed to earn a penalty in 38th minute. Drag-flicker Gurjinder Singh converted the penalty corner into a beautiful goal to give India a 2-0 lead.

"This series was a good experience for us. All the players got enough chance and opportunity to take their skills to another level. We need to improve more on penalty corner conversions and man to man marking. I would also like to appreciate Bangladesh team for their competitive game," India coach Tushar Khandker said.
