--s2h team
Indian women’s star striker Poonam Rani Malik wants to emulate their male counterparts and return happily from Singapore continuing the winning momentum set in motion by both India’s senior and junior teams last Sunday. The girls are playing in their fourth Women’s Champions Trophy in Singapore, and are at present on top of pool with two wins and a draw. undefined

Elaborating on the last Happy Sunday, the Haryana Hurricane Poonam said: “Last couple of days have been great days for India. First senior boys won at Kuantan (Champions Trophy). Same day juniors also gave us the good news from Europe (winning Valencia 4-Nation Cup). Same day, that is Diwali Day, we also could beat Korea in a great match, Korea is always tough side to beat”.

The forward continued: “When our boys have done it, we can also do it (winning the Champions Trophy)”.

ON MATCH AGAINST MALAYSIA: It was a tough match. Considering our last Champions Trophy result against same Malaysia, today’s is not a good score for us.

“We defeated them 5-2 last time. I think yesterday we played a tough match against Korea. Because of that we may be a bit low on recovery". undefined

"We did not play so well, but victory is victory, we got full points, you know".

On pointed out missing out penalty corner count shad concurred: "We got good number of penalty corners. Last match we could convert two out of three, but today it did not work out. We tried but not happened.

"We know the importance of PCs. Teams win or lose here. Therefore, we will focus more on this, and hope we will do better in the coming matches".

Poonam and Vandana combined beautifully in the first quarter to give India an early lead. And then Deepika tapped in a penalty corner rebound to add to the score board as India defeated Malaysia on Tuesday in its third match.
