Skipper Rupinder Pal Singh led with a hat-trick as India ‘A’ team drubbed visitors Bangladesh 7-0 at the Sports Authority of India, Bengaluru campus, on Tuesday. 

Bangladesh, who are seeking right preparations ahead of the Asian Games in Jakarta by playing against India ‘A’ and Indian junior men’s teams, started the match positively but an infringement by one of their defenders led to India’s first penalty corner in the 13th minute, which was well-converted by in-form Rupinder Pal Singh. 

India ‘A’ team’s 1-0 lead was extended with goals from Gagandeep Singh Sr (20th) and Akashdeep Singh (26th). Rupinder then struck back-to-back goals (29th, 30th) to make it 5-0 for hosts at the end of the first half. 

Gurjant Singh then scored a brace in the second half to seal the match 7-0.

Though, Bangladesh made some feisty attempts on goal, India ‘A’ custodian Jagdeep Dayal was alert at the post while the team’s defence stood strong to end up with a convincing win. 

On Monday, Indian junior men’s team had humbled Bangladesh 6-3 in their third practice match after strikes from Raj Kumar Pal (3rd), Shilanand Lakra (19th), Mohammad Umar (22nd), Mandeep Mor (33rd), Hardik Singh (46th) and Abhishek (48th).

Rashel Mahamud (11th), Mohammad Ashraful Islam (49th) and Mohammad Mahabub Hossain (53rd) scored for Bangladesh.
