campaign on a high note and earn a podium finish.

Salima Tete's goal gave India the lead and they led 1-0 at half-time.

Neha Goyal almost doubled the lead after the break, but good defending by New Zealand prevented the Indians from consolidating their position.

Earlier, the men's hockey team of India advanced to the final after defeating South Africa. They registered a 3-2 win and confirmed yet another medal for India in this year's edition of CWG. They will play the final match against Australia on the 8th of August, Monday.
