The Indian group clocked 3:46.49 minutes to conquer Thailand (3:48.89) and Hong Kong (3:53.99) respectively in the Padukone-Dravid Centre of Sports Excellence.

India withstood the challenge posed by Thailand and Hong Kong since they got off to a flying start due to Srihari Nataraj (56.55) at backstroke as he finished before Hong Kong’s Lau Shiu Yue (57.72) and Thailand’s Kasipat Chograthin (58.41).

Sajan Prakash, diving next for the butterfly flair, kept up India’s lead with a period of 54.50 minutes while Thailand’s Navaphat Wongcharoen clocked 54.50 minutes and Hong Kong’s Cheung Yau Ming (56.60).

Likith SP, swimming breaststroke, has been excellent because he extended the right the speediest time of 1:02.47 while Thailand’s Nuttapong Ketan timed 1:03.69 and Hong Kong’s NG Yan Kin clocked 1:05.82 minutes.

Khade that won gold in the 50m freestyle on Wednesday guaranteed the first-place finish. He timed 53.00 minutes while Thailand’s Tarot Thongchumsin clocked 52.29 minutes and Hong Kong’s Fung Chung Ho 53.85 minutes.
