Rani takes Hockey eves into semi-finals
Gold Coast: The Indian Women's Hockey Team qualified for the Semi-Finals of the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games as they defeated South Africa by 1-0 in their last Pool A match here on Tuesday.
India only required a draw to progress to the semi-final as they had accumulated a tally of six points from three matches before they faced South Africa, who needed to win the match as they could only accumulate four points from their first three games.
But a strong display in defence from the Indian side saw them continue their marvellous run at the CWG as skipper Rani scored the only goal of the match in the 47th minute. The first quarter started with both teams attacking each other by creating opportunities but not converting them.
