With this remarkable win, the Men in Green qualified for the next round as they won both of their round-stage games, against Mongolia and Chinese Taipei.
In their opening game of the marquee event, the Green Shirts defeated a 58-ranked Mongolia team in straight sets, 25-17, 25-19, and 25-20, on Tuesday.
The national team moved to the top of the points table after they defeated the 44-ranked Chinese Taipei, who won Bronze in 2018 by 25-18, 25-20, and 25-19.
The top two teams from each pool will move on to the round of 12, where they will compete in cross-matches (B1 v E2, A2 v F1, A1 v F2, B2 v E1, C1 v D2, C2 v D1).
As per the rules, the six victorious teams from this stage will compete for rankings 1-6, while the remaining six teams will be placed in the 7-12 rankings.
