Jan 18, 2023:

Following a brilliant performance in their first match on Monday, the Indian Women’s Hockey Team defeated South Africa 7-0 in their second match of the South Africa Tour in Cape Town.

They opened the campaign with a 5-1 win, and they continued with the same zeal on Tuesday, starting with a fine 9th-minute goal by Udita.

In the second quarter, the team led by goalkeeper Savita increased the pressure on South Africa, forming some potent attacking combinations. Vaishnavi Vithal Phalke, , who made her International debut for the Senior Women’s side in their opening match on Monday, scored India’s second goal in the 22nd minute.

This was followed by a brilliant field goal by experienced forward Rani, who is making her comeback after nearly six months of playing her previous match during the FIH Hockey Pro League in 2022. She had also scored India’s first goal in the opening game. By the end of the second quarter, India’s 3-0 lead had grown to 6-0.

Sangita Kumari, Navneet Kaur, and Vandana Katariya scored in the 25th, 26th, and 27th minutes of the game, respectively. With India on the offensive, South Africa’s defence fell short.

Despite the fact that no goals were scored in the third quarter, India ended the game with Vandana scoring her second goal of the match in the 58th minute.
