In a display of a brilliant performance, Australia thrashed China 11-0 in a Pool B match of the Hockey World Cup in Bhubaneshwar on Friday.
Blake Govers scored a hat-trick ( at the 10th minute, 19th and 34th), Tim Brand (33rd, 55th) scored a brace, while goals from Flynn Ogilvie (49th), Jake Whetton (29th), Aran Zalewski (15th), Tom Craig (16th), Dylan Wotherspoon (38th) and Jeremy Hayward (22nd) helped Australia get their second highest win.
At the outset, the Australians were on the mark and continued to press their opponent’s defence regularly which resulted in their massive win.
Australia is now sitting at the top of the group with nine points.
Australia holds a World Cup record of a 12-0 win against South Africa which they set in 2010.
