* The second game, too, turns out to be more of the first for India, who lose 11-25. Japan now lead the best-of-five contest 2-0. Very little chances of this going beyond third
* Abject surrender! Japan take the first game 25-6 as India fail to get their basics right
* Japan dominate proceedings against India, who are outplayed by their opposition
* Meanwhile, Indian women’s team struggle against Japan in the volleyball contest
