The Indian men’s U-23 team created history on Saturday by defeating Pakistan 3-1 for a place in the final of the Asian Men’s U-23 Volleyball Championships here. This is the first time that an Indian team has made it to the final of this tournament.

India has now also qualified for the Under-23 World Volleyball Championships for the first time.

The team overcame a jittery start in the semi-final to win three back-to-back sets and secure a place in the Asian Men’s U-23 Volleyball Championship Final on the back of some good performances by skipper Amit Gulia and setter Muthusamy.

The first set saw Pakistan catching India off-guard with their pacy game. India fell behind early and never recovered to eventually concede the set 21-25.

However, Gulia’s boys showed no signs of panic in the second set as they started off confidently and took control of the proceedings to win the second set by 25-16, the Indian spikers began the next set in similar vein and hardly looked back before winning it 25-22.

The fourth set gave the motley crowd gathered at the venue some thrilling volleyball action as neither team gave an inch.  But India kept their nerves to win the set by 25-18 and seal the spot in the final of .Asian Men’s U-23 Volleyball Championship.

In the final, India will take on mighty Chinese Taipei on Sunday for their first ever Asian Title.
