While Poonam completed her 100th match during India's three-match series against Ireland last week, Chan Chan achieved the distinction during their opening Champions Challenge 1 match against South Korea in Glasgow on Sunday.

Hisar-born Poonam, who played her first international in 2009, has not looked back since her debut helped her seal a Junior World Cup berth in the United States the same year. She later represented India in the World Cup in Argentina, in New Delhi's Commonwealth Games and Guangzhou Asian Games in 2010.

Since then Poonam has represented India in almost every tournament that the country has played. She was also part of the historic bronze medal winning team at the Junior World Cup in Germany last year.

Chan Chan, who comes from Manipur, also debuted in 2009 at the seventh Asia Cup in Thailand followed by Champions Challenge in Russia. In 2010, she played in the Champions Trophy in Korea, the World Cup in Argentina, Commonwealth Games and Asian Games. HI wished them continuous success in their future international careers.
