Australia drub India

A lacklustre India started their campaign in the women’s junior hockey World Cup on a disappointing note, losing 1-6 to formidable Australia in a Pool C match here on Saturday


Australia were by far the dominant side and scored through Kathryn Slattery (17th minute), Murphy Allendorf (20th), Madison Fitzpatrick (31st), Brooke Peris (41st, 69th) and Anna Flanagan (46th).

Anupa Barla (27th) scored the lone goal for India. India will take on New Zealand in their second pool match on Sunday. Meanwhile, in the other Pool C match of the day, New Zealand crushed Russia 10-0.
