India defeated three-time champions Australia 1-0 to reach the semi-finals in women’s hockey of the Tokyo Olympics at the Oi Hockey Stadium North Pitch today.
Drag-flicker Gurjit Kaur converted India's lone penalty corner in the 22nd minute to surprise the Australians.
This will be India women's hockey team's first semi-final appearance in the Olympics.
Indian women's hockey team had finished fourth in the 1980 Moscow Olympics but the format was different, as there were no knockout games.
India will face Argentina in the semifinals, who defeated Germany 3-0 in the first semi-final.
A spot in the semi-finals also means that India are guaranteed a medal match for the first-time in Olympics.
