Kalinga Lancers displayed brilliant skills as they thrashed Dabang Mumbai 4-1 in the final to win their maiden Hockey India League in Chandigarh on Sunday. The Lancers owed their victory to skipper Moritz Furste's heroics as he scored consecutive goals through penalty corners.

Although Mumbai tried to fight back, they were no match for the Lancers who scored two more goals through superb efforts of Glenn Turner and Furste.

Affan Yousuf scored the lone goal for Mumbai as Kalinga Lancers completely outplayed their opponents and were crowned champions.
