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.

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...!
