Hockey: Indian women's team will take on Ghana
Birmingham: Putting aside the pain of a poor World Cup performance, the Indian women's hockey team will look to start their campaign with a big margin against Ghana at the Commonwealth Games on Friday. The Indian team is placed in Pool A along with hosts England, Canada, Wales, Ghana, while Australia, South Africa, New Zealand, Scotland and Kenya are in Pool B. Like the men's team, the Indian women's team also returned empty-handed from the last Commonwealth Games held in Gold Coast. England defeated him 6-0 in the bronze medal playoff match. Since the inclusion of women's hockey in 1998, India won the gold medal in Manchester in 2002. Apart from a stellar performance in the Olympics, the Indian team finished third this season making its Pro League debut.
