Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar congratulated the Indian women's team for its best-ever performance at the ongoing Olympics.
India took the lead through Gurjit Kaur’s goal in the 22nd minute and kept the Aussies women at bay to go into the break. But the Australians were relentless in their pursuit for the equaliser.

Eight seasoned players -- are part of the 16-member strong squad. The team captain will be announced later, said HI
The selection of the final 16 players who will represent the country in Tokyo is awaited and Toppo said there is no dearth of talent in the squad with several youngsters rising the ranks.
