After a humiliating 1-6 drubbing in the first match against Australia, the Indian girls did a much better job on Sunday.
     
Manjit opened the scoring for India in the 45th minute with a field goal after a barren first half. Vandana doubled the lead six minutes later and that stayed with India till the end of the match.
     
India's next opponent in Pool C are Russia, who have lost both their matches so far, while Australia lock horns with New Zealand on Tuesday.
     
Australia are on top of the table with six points from two wins, while New Zealand and India have three points each but Kiwis are placed second due to better goal difference.
     
Top two teams from the group will qualify for the quarter-finals.
