Skipper Saba Anjum led from the front scoring three goals to help India thrash Azerbaijan 6-1 and advance into the quarterfinals of the FIH Women's Champions Challenge I hockey tournament in Dublin, Ireland.

India, who led 5-0 at the half time, were in total domination in their last Pool B round robin fixture. Saba (4th, 7th and 32nd) converted three penalty corners while Deepika Thakur (10th), Rani Rampal (18th) and Jasjit Kaur Handa (52nd) fired in a goal each to hand India the rampaging victory.
