In the second half, England came back through Anna Toman who levelled the scores with a 55th minute field goal.

Anna, who brought England back in to the match, took the first shot at the goal but missed while India's Rani came out on top again by scoring and giving India a 1-0 lead.

Following that, India kept the lead for the next six shots as all the players -- Navneet Kaur, Vandana Katariya, Navjot Kaur for India and Lucy Hyams, Shona McCallin, Jo Leigh of England -- missed their shots.

Finally, Emily Defroand levelled the score (1-1) for England which was followed by Poonam Rani's miss leading to sudden death.

In the end, Navneet Kaur maintained her calm to give India a 3-2 lead and England's Anna missed her stroke to give India its first medal in this category.

The final will later be contested between the Netherlands and Argentina.

Following the win, Hockey India said that all the players and the chief coach Neil Hawgood will get Rs.1 lakh each as prize money while the support staff will receive Rs.50,000 for this achievement.
