The Indian women’s hockey team thumped Malaysia 9-0 in their opening clash of the ongoing Asia Cup 2022 in Muscat, Oman on Friday.
The Indian team has stepped onto the field with the aim of defending their title as well as securing a berth at the Women’s Hockey World Cup.
The Asia Cup will be crucial for all the teams that are participating in the tournament. Only the top four teams will qualify for the 2022 FIH Women’s Hockey World Cup to be held in Spain and the Netherlands later this year.
Keeping in mind the World Cup spot, India will look to continue their winning momentum throughout the tournament. The defending champions are grouped in Pool A along side Japan, Malaysia and Singapore.
The Indian women’s hockey team will be up against Japan in its next match.
