After winning their thrilling first set against Vietnam 25-19, India played more confidently in the second set, with Athira Chalingal Chand showing her grit in attacking aggressively and Nishya Joseph producing scintillating blocking.

Vietnam put their act together hoping to make amends for the loss in the first set, and caught up with the Indians at 14-14 thanks largely to Ha Ngoc Diem’s spikes. Still, India had enough to hold their less-trained rivals off, widening the gap to 17-15 and then 23-20. They never looked back from then on, taking the set 25-20.

India took control in the third set, building a 23-14 lead before Vietnam fought back to win three straight points and come close at 17-23. However, India bagged the remaining two points for the eventual 25-18 win in the set.

Athira Chalingal Chand led India with 16 points, while Ha Ngoc Diem emerged as the Vietnam’s top scorer with 14 points.
