In a Men's hockey world cup, seven countries participated. In the league, each country earned points as under:

India - 10 points
Argentina - 10 points
Holland - 8 points
Australia - 6 points
Malaysia - 3 points
Russia - 3 points
Kenya - 2 points

Note: The point system was as under:
For each match won: 2 points
For each match tied: 1 points
For each match lost: 0 points

Following facts are known:
[A] Number of matches won by Holland, are equal to half the number of matches tied by it.
[B] Kenya defeated Russia in a match, in which Russia coud score 2 goals against 3 goals by Kenya.
[C] Australia had not a single match tied against any country.

With the help of above information, can you find the results of all the league matches in this tournament?

Note: There is no typo error this time. However if any clarification needed please ask...!
