Indian spikers continued their fine form beating Turkmenistan in straight sets in the second Asian Central Zone Championship in Islamabad.

The Indians beat the Central Asians 25-18, 25-23, 25-18 in an hour-long contest.

Mandeep Singh was the star performer for them along with libero Sivarajan and Ukkrapandian.

Since losing to Iran in their opening encounter, India has been on a winning spree beating Sri Lanka, defending champions Kazakhstan and hosts Pakistan before getting the better of Turkmenistan in their fifth match at the Liaquat Gymnasium on Sunday.

They will now take on Maldives in their final match of the seven-team tournament.
