With Deepika’s winner in the final seconds of the match, India registered a 2-1 win over China in the 4th Asian Champions Trophy hockey tournament in Singapore on Saturday. Both teams pressed hard for the winner in the final quarter but it was Deepika’s heroics which sealed the deal for the Indian unit.
After the win, Twitter went berserk and lauded the women’s team for their feat. It comes less than a week after India men’s team beat Pakistan for the Asian Champions Trophy title. Here’s a look at the top Twitter reactions:
