IANS logoIANS 08-03-2017

Captained by striker Rani Rampal, the Indian women were quick to get off the mark as Vandana Katariya scored a stunning field goal in the sixth minute of the match.

The first quarter went on to be an eventful one for the hosts, as Gurjit Kaur successfully converted a penalty corner in the 15th minute to take her side 2-0 up against Belarus.

Though the two teams showcased good defensive structure in the following two quarters, the visitors found a break through in the 52nd minute when Yuliya Mikheichyk successfully converted a penalty corner.

However, the Indian defence held strong thereafter, and even converted a penalty corner through skipper Rani in the 55th minute to eventually seal the match in their favour.
