In the last pool game against China, ranked number 5 in the world, India lost a close game 2-1. The match started slowly, with most of the battles taking place in the midfield and both teams struggling to penetrate the circle. China had the best opportunity of the quarter with a PC which was well saved by Savita in goal to take the teams to the break tied 0-0.

India came to life in the second quarter early. Rani scored off a swiftly worked counter from the right, giving India the lead in the 19th minute. China immediately hit back, and won a PC of their own, but another save from Savita ensured India went into the break with their lead intact.

Group A leaders Ukraine Otamans travelled to China high on confidence after a thrilling win over Group A rivals Cuba Domadores a fortnight ago, but the China Dragons carved out one of the performances of the season so far to win 4-1 on Saturday night to the delight of the home crowd. The hosts leap-frogged Turkiye Conquerors to go third in the group after the European side lost 5-0 in Havana, a result that sent the Cubans top.

In the first bout of the day, China Dragons' He Junjun was in determined mood against Nazar Kurotchyn, his well-timed jabs repeatedly finding their target early on. The Dragons’ star grew stronger as the bout wore on and the crowd erupted as Kurotchyn was floored in the fifth round and counted out of the contest.

There seems to be no stopping Mercedes this year as Lewis Hamilton racked up his third win on the bounce in Asia, coasting for a lights to chequered flag victory at the Chinese Grand Prix in Shanghai. Such was Hamilton's dominance, that he strode to victory a full 18 seconds ahead of teammate Nico Rosberg, who by virtue of grabbing second place once again, still leads Hamilton in the Drivers' Championship standings by 4 points.

Rosberg would have been disappointed to have not been more competitive in this race, but a poor start from his qualifying position of fourth meant that he had to work his way up the field in the early stages of the race and by then Hamilton was already long gone into the Shanghai sunset. The German was also without any car to pit communication for the bulk of the race and was far from happy with how luck has conspired against him of late.

As the track rubbered in and a clean line emerged, all the teams then tried the Soft compound, seen for the first time this season.
