India trying for better coordination among their forwards. And it almost paid off between Mandeep, Malak and Thimmaiah. But Mandeep sent the corner in a lot earlier, should have held it back for a couple of seconds more.

One-touch play is the most evident change in this Indian team under Oltmans. They are not holding onto the ball for long, like the Europeans, but at times doing it tad too early.

GOAL! Mandeep scores again.
by Jaspreet Sahni8/24/2013 9:00:59 AM
Nice centre from the right, and good trapping by Mandeep who shot in a reverse hit past the Oman goalkeeper. India 5 - 0 Oman

Oman's Salim Al Hasani has been green-carded, out for a 2-min suspension
by Jaspreet Sahni8/24/2013 9:03:49 AM
45th min: GOAL! Ramandeep gets his second on debut.
by Jaspreet Sahni8/24/2013 9:05:24 AM
The initial credit should go to Mandeep who overlapped from the left of the Oman circle to move in and then sent a one-handed pass to Ramandeep who had positioned himself well for a clean reverse tap into the goal. India 6 - 0 Oman
by Jaspreet Sahni8/24/2013 9:06:16 AM
Must mention two very good attacks by Oman since the last goal by Indian, but the last bit of movement cost them.
by Jaspreet Sahni8/24/2013 9:08:29 AM
GOAL! Malak gets himself on the board in the 47th min. India 7 - 0 Oman
by Jaspreet Sahni8/24/2013 9:08:57 AM
It's turning into a goal-fest now. All Oman can do now is control the damage.
by Jaspreet Sahni8/24/2013 9:09:54 AM
Into the last 20 minutes of this match
by Jaspreet Sahni8/24/2013 9:12:18 AM
Chance to score another one for India, but Chinglensana miscues, lack of coordination between the Indian forwards.
by Jaspreet Sahni8/24/2013 9:14:06 AM
Last 15 minutes. Can India make it 10 or more? Should.
by Jaspreet Sahni8/24/2013 9:16:42 AM
Good skills by Manpreet, creates a penalty corner.
by Jaspreet Sahni8/24/2013 9:19:55 AM
Sardar fails to push it cleanly and Oman put the ball away easily. Unexpected error from Sardar.
by Jaspreet Sahni8/24/2013 9:21:19 AM
Final 10 minutes.
by Jaspreet Sahni8/24/2013 9:22:22 AM
That was the first real opportunity for Oman to pull one goal back, but No. 11 was way off target even when he had a lot of time to aim and hit.
by Jaspreet Sahni8/24/2013 9:23:59 AM
India trying hard to score their 8th goal, but letting themselves down in the striking circle. And in one of those goal-mouth melees Manpreet has got injured.
by Jaspreet Sahni8/24/2013 9:28:35 AM
Five minutes left in the match. While Oman struggling to score a consolation goal, India letting themselves down in the striking circle.
by Jaspreet Sahni8/24/2013 9:30:37 AM
Rupinder Pal too has had a great game, apart from missing a couple of penalty corners. He and Raghunath now look a formidable force in the defence.
by Jaspreet Sahni8/24/2013 9:34:10 AM
GOAL! Uthappa slides to meet the cross and the ball goes into the goal.
by Jaspreet Sahni8/24/2013 9:34:48 AM
FULL TIME: India beat Oman 8-0
by Jaspreet Sahni8/24/2013 9:35:41 AM
So a good outing for India all together, with more field goals coming their way. But that also means that there is work to be done on the penalty corners.
by Jaspreet Sahni8/24/2013 9:39:50 AM
But this was an expected result, and the real test will come in the next match when India take on South Korea on Monday.
Like always, we will be there for the Live Updates form Ipoh. Be there with us. Until then, good bye.
