New Delhi: The Indian women's hockey team created history by winning the Asian Champions Trophy title for the first time by beating China 2-1 in the final.
Deep Grace Ekka had put India in front in the 13th minute by converting from a penalty corner. The Indian managed to hold on to their lead but China equalised in the 44th minute through Zhong Mengling.
India had gone down fighting to China on Friday in their last league game, which was their only loss in the tournament. This victory though has come as sweet revenge.
