The Indian men and women team scored expected victories against lowest ranked Egypt in the World teams' chess championship.

The Indian men surprisingly dropped 1.5 points despite being overwhelming rating favourites on all four boards but in the end the third victory on the trot was sweet taking them on to six points out of a possible nine.

Grandmaster B Adhiban proved his true mettle as he crushed Fawdy Adham on the second board while Vidit Gujarathi, Murali Karthikeyan and Parimarjan Negi were held to draws.
