India Women continue to dominate in the Women's Asian Champions Trophy 2023 as they defeated Malaysia Women on Saturday night to register their second successive victory in the competition.

For the second straight game, India dominated the opposition and registered another massive victory. Four different players scored for the team to complete the 5-0 drubbing of Malaysia.

While Vandana Katariya scored two goals, Sangita Kumari, Jyoti, and Lalremsiami found the back of the net one time each.

India dominated Malaysia right from the start, as they scored the first goal in the 7th minute as Vandana Katariya successfully converted a penalty corner. She repeated the feat in the 21st minute to double India's lead.

However, India killed the game in the 28th minute as Sangita Kumari and Lalremsiami scored back-to-back field goals to take the scoreline to 4-0.

Malaysia looked toothless during the whole game, and Jyoti also registered her name on the scoresheet with a field goal in the 38th minute. No further goals were scored in the game as India comfortably held on to their lead to complete another dominating victory.
