Showing they are the giants of the tournament, China easily picked India apart, 25-9, 25-13, 25-17, in the Group B preliminaries of the 2015 U23 Asian Women’s Volleyball Championship on Saturday evening at Philsports Arena.

China was on a class of their own easily putting points in a hurry as India’s receiving game could not keep up with the Chinese.

“Our attack was good, but we failed a little bit on the receptions,” Phadtare said. “Everyone knows China is the giant so we tried to keep up with their pace.
