The Indian women's team strengthened its position on the top of the table with a dominating 10-0 win over Fiji in Round Two of the Hockey World League at the Major Dhyan Chand National Stadium here yesterday

Forwards Rani Rampal (22nd minute, 61st), Roselin Dung Dung (15th, 45th) and drag-flicker Jaspreet Kaur (59th, 69th) struck a brace each while Yendala Soundarya (7th), Namita Toppo (11th), Navjot Kaur (38th) and Chanchan Devi Thokchom (66th) struck once each.

With the win, India moved a point clear of top seeds Japan, who were held 1-1 by Russia earlier in the day.

Indian coach Neil Hawgood however said that there was still room for improvement. “We are getting into the circle and our turnovers are happening, but I am looking for consistency.”
