21st Commonwealth Games: Win for Indian women's hockey team
Gurjit Kaur and Rani Rampal handed India a convincing 4-1 win against Malaysia in women's hockey at the ongoing 21st Commonwealth Games. The Pool A win over Malaysia helped the Indian eves get their campaign back on track after they had faced a 2-3 loss against Wales in their opening encounter. The victory helps Indian women to stay in medal contention.
2nd half solidity gives India victory
Three goals from the Indian team in the second half made all the difference. Earlier in the first half, Malaysia did not allow India the space after limiting them to a lone goal, which was scored by Gurjit Kaur. The 2002 CWG gold medallist team saw Malaysia equalize in the 38th minute. From there on, India attacked through the flanks and bagged the goals.
India on song!
