Indian women’s hockey team to leave for New Zealand on Tuesday

New Delhi, April 6 (IANS) The Indian women’s hockey team will depart for New Zealand on Tuesday to participate in the Hawke’s Bay Cup.

The team will play their first match against China on April 11.
“We are not allowing our last unbeaten win during the World League Round 2 to affect us. While we are high on confidence, we are not forgetting the fact that we are due to meet teams like Australia, New Zealand and China,” defender Sushila Chanu said.
“Our focus presently is on our first clash against China. They are a strong team but we are positive of a win. The plan is to look for the initial opportunity to score and this will help put pressure on them.”
The Hawke’s Bay Cup will be played from April 11 to 19 with eight teams participating.
