Indian eves started their campaign in style in the hockey event of the 16th Asian Games, thrashing lowly Malaysia 4-0 in their opening Group A match in Guangzhou today.
India were by far the better side on display under lights at the Aoti hockey field here this evening as they controlled the game during the entire 70 minutes and pumped in four field goals to start their campaign on a winning note.
Thokchom Chanchan Devi opened the scoring for India in the 26th minute from a field strike but that was all that coach Sandeep Somesh's girls could manage in the opening period.
However, after the change of ends it was a different story as Deepika doubled India's lead in the 43rd minute and then after 10 minutes Rani Rampal made it 3-0.
Captain Surinder Kaur too registered her name in the scoresheet, scoring India's fourth goal just three minutes from the hooter in the one-sided affair.
India will face Japan in their next group match on November 16.
