The New Zealand women’s hockey team produced a dominant performance on Tuesday as they thrashed a sloppy Indian side 5-0 in their second match of the Hockey World League Semi-final.
Gemma Flynn put the black brigade ahead in the 10th minute before Olivia Merry doubled the lead eight minutes later.
Flynn netted another goal before Kirsten Pierce struck a brace to give an unassailable 5-0 lead in the final quarter.
With the defeat, Indian eves’ hopes of qualifying for next year’s Rio Olympics have receded as they meet Poland in their third match on Wednesday.
Last week, India were beaten 0-1 by Belgium in the opening game of the tournament.
