Team India thrashed Thailand 5-0 to emerge top of Pool B with 12 points at the Asian Games in Jakarta. Despite the final scoreline Thailand made the India sweat to achieve this phenomenal victory. Rani Rampal awed the nation with a hat trick( 37ND 46th and 56th minutes) and Monika( 52ND) and Navjot Kaur( 55TH) contributed the two other goals.

The Indians’ game was especially attractive as they displayed a brave attacking brand of hockey consistently pushing Thailand on the defensive- a move reflected in the impressive final scorecard.
