Jakarta: Four Indian players scored a hat-trick each as the women’s hockey team mauled lowly Kazakhstan 21-0 to notch up its second consecutive win in the Asian Games here today.
Goals rained thick and fast in the Pool B match at the GBK Hockey Field with as many as 10 Indians out of 18, who took the field, entering their names in the scoresheet.
The Indians scored almost at will against the hapless Kazakhstan team but the scoreline missed the all-time Asian Games record of 22-0 by a goal.
The Indian women’s team had beaten Hong Kong 22-0 in the 1982 Asiad.
