Indian men's hockey team made a first-class debut in the Pro League, thrashing World number 3 Netherlands 5-2 in the opening match on Saturday. World number 5, India, dominated the visitors through most parts of the game, with Gurjant Singh scoring the opener within the first 13 seconds. It was the fastest goal by an Indian. Veteran Rupinder Pal Singh scored a brace and gave his side the winning momentum. With all the top teams of the world in the fray, this is good preparation for India ahead of the Olympics later this year.
