Grandmaster D Harika scored the only win of the day for the side as India edged past Greece 2.5-1.5 in the seventh round to stay in contention in the World women team chess championship.

Harika defeated Marina Makropoulou while Koneru Humpy, Tania Sachdev and Padmini Rout all settled for draws.

On the top board for India, Grand Master Humpy in fact stood slightly worse against top Greek Yelina Dembo and on the other boards too the forms of the Indians was found wanting as both Tania and Padmini failed to make the most of their positions against lower ranked opponents.

China remained in sole lead on 14 points from seven match.
