CWG 2018: Indian Women’s Hockey Team stunned 2-3 by Wales

Prime News, International Sports, National Sports, Hockey, Gold Coast (Australia), April 5:- The Indian Women’s Hockey Team started off their Gold Coast 2018 XXI Commonwealth Games campaign with a disappointing 2-3 loss to Wales in their first Pool A match of the competition here on Thursday.

It was Wales who scored two goals in the first 26 minutes through Lisa Daley (7′) and Sian French (26′) to take a 2-0 lead, but goals from skipper Rani (34′) and Nikki Pradhan (41′) gave the Indian team a much-needed life-line.

However, Natasha Marke-Jones popped up for the Welsh in the 57th minute to give her team a crucial victory against the world number 10 Indian side.

The first quarter saw India struggle to build attacks as their passing was rusty, and the Welsh played with high intensity to spring a surprise for India.-(NGB, Inputs: Agencies)
