NEW DELHI: With the team set to leave for the FIH World League Semifinals, Indian women's hockey chief coach Mathias Ahrens on Thursday said that his focus during the preparations was on improving penalty corner conversions and playing with more speed.

"We are in the final phase of preparation for the World League Semifinals and it is quiet a mixed feeling at the moment. We are focusing on fine tuning penalty corners, long corners and set pieces. The team is spending more time on speed which will help work on covering the distance," Ahrens said.

"The team today is strong on their counter attacks and our attack in the D is improving drastically. We are now focusing on things to come together and if we deliver then we are on track," he added.

Captain Ritu Rani said, "The team looks very confident under the new coach as we are learning and adapting to newer skills which will help us perform better in the opponent's D. We are positive to deliver the desired results."

The FIH Hockey World League Semifinal will be played from June 20 to July 4 in Antwerp, Belgium and 10 teams will take part in the tournament. India play their first match against Belgium on June 20.
