--s2h Team
India struck 24-1 against USA 86 years ago. This was the biggest score for India. It stood till today for the long standing Indian record of Indian men's biggest international victory. Today, it is broken by PR Sreejesh' team when they defeated Hong Kong 26-0 at Jakarta Asian Games.

Led by Lal Shah Bokhari, who later became Pakistan's Sri Lankan Ambassador, India crushed the hosts States 24 - 1 in Los Angeles Olympics on its way to retain the Olympic gold medal. The team had such greats as Dhyan Chand and Rup Singh on its rolls.

A couple days ago, India made 17-0 against Indonesia at Jakarta. That time it was thought the novice team may turn out to be a mincemeat for the Indians who may create the history. However, they coould contain India to that score, but today the Hong Kong team caved in to not deny India its space in the sky.

Of course, this is not the world's biggest score as many bigger scores have been struck in Oceania and Pan American Games above 30 goals in a match.

Continuing its freeflow hockey, India amassed six goals at the end of first quarter, first four goals coming in first four minutes, six more in the next. Second half saw another 12 goals coming in.
