Team India takes on New Zealand in the bronze medal match, in the women's hockey competition, on the penultimate day of the CWG 2022. The women's team showed a lot of resilience against Australia, but could not make it to the final; and now they have a chance to finish on the podium.

And they defend well. WHat scenes here.

Q4 IND 1 NZ 0

SHOOTOUT TIME NOW

Q4 IND 1 NZ 0

PC in last 30 secs of the match.

And they have a stroke.

Q4 IND 1 NZ 0

Yellow card for Lalremsiami. She is out of the match now. So this is 11 on 9.

Q4 IND 1 NZ 0

Now no NZ keeper and they will go all in. Chance for India.

Q4 IND 1 NZ 0

PC for India but they can't convert once again. This is poor PC conversion.

Q4 IND 1 NZ 0

There is a PC for India, Gurjit goes for the flick, but it is a save.

Q4 IND 1 NZ 0

Navneet has just keeper in front of her, but she can't get the goal.

Q4 IND 1 NZ 0

This is getting really close here. NZ come close to scoring again. India not pressing hard on attack.

Q4 IND 1 NZ 0

Last quarter and nothing much to separate between these two teams. NZ have stepped up the attack in the last 10 mins.

Q3 IND 1 NZ 0

And New Zealand get a slight chance and they convert. This is brilliant. Not much that the Indian defence could do.

AND THE GOAL DOES NOT COUNT

Q3 IND 1 NZ 0

Excellent ball by Neha in the D but forwards can't convert. 

Q3 IND 1 NZ 0

Get more chances in the D, that would be the message by the coach.

Q3 IND 1 NZ 0

A great switch in the D for India, and they have a PC!

A MISSED CHANCE

Q3 IND 1 NZ 0

INdia has numbers in the attack, and now they need to convert.

Q3 IND 1 NZ 0

Good press by the Indians in the other half.

Q3 IND 1 NZ 0

Third quarter now. Chanu defends well here. Deep defence has been great for the team.

HALF TIME! DO JOIN US IN 10 MINS.

Q2 IND 1 NZ 0

GOALLLLLLL!

And finally, Salima Tete finds the top of the net and India have scored.

Q2 IND 0 NZ 0

Despite playing well India have not had a PC.

Q2 IND 0 NZ 0

FIrst real attack by the Kiwis and it was really close. 

Q2 IND 0 NZ 0

Indian defence has been good too as they have avoided circle entries.

Q2 IND 0 NZ 0

Excellent work by NZ defence as they have not conceded even one PC.

Q2 IND 0 NZ 0

Another circle entry for India but amounting to nothing.

Q2 IND 0 NZ 0

India showing all the signs of scoring, but finishing has been a constant problem for them.

Q1 IND 0 NZ 0

Positive signs for the Indians in the first quarter as they came close to scoring in the first quarter.

Q1 IND 0 NZ 0

Salima is in a great position to score, she is unmarked on the far post. But she somehow manages to miss.

Q1 IND 0 NZ 0

And India create an opportunity, brilliant work by the midflield. Sangita with a tomhawk, but its a save.

Q1 IND 0 NZ 0

Savita is the backbone of this team, much like Sreejesh in the men's.

Q1 IND 0 NZ 0

PC FOR NZ

SAVE

Q1 IND 0 NZ 0

A counter-attack by NZ and no damage done. The defence line gets it from skipper Savita.

Q1 IND 0 NZ 0

Possession still with India, but they haven't really looked to attack.

Q1 IND 0 NZ 0

Skill-wise the Indian team is second to none, but coordination in the circle and PC conversion is something to work on.

Q1 IND 0 NZ 0

Not a great opening by either team. They need to show more intent, the Indians. But still early days in the match.

Q1 IND 0 NZ 0

Unlike Aus, Nz are not really in the best formation for attack.

Q1 IND 0 NZ 0

NZ have numbers in deep defence and they get the ball out of the circle easily.

Q1 IND 0 NZ 0

First attack from New Zealand, but an unfruitful one. India get possession

Q1 IND 0 NZ 0 

And here we go. The match gets underway. India would go for the kill, hopefully.

And it is a big one today. Team India, after facing an unfortunate defeat against Australia in semis on Friday, must be itching to get on the podium. They take on New Zealand in the bronze medal match, and the team cannot be taken lightly. But whatever the result be, we are mighty proud of the women's hockey team.
