However, as of now, they will be taking one game at a time, which is a better formula, rather than looking ahead. The team will once again be without the services of Rani Rampal, who is still injured. As a result, the team will be looking for the services of Vandana Katariya in front of goal.

The team lacked quality in the final third in the World Cup, and there is a serious need to get their A game going in the CWG. They are not expected to face tough challenge from Ghana, but it gives the team an early chance to gel as a unit in a competitive manner before the competition moves ahead.

With Ghana, who are ranked 30 in the world, India should be able to score a flurry of goals in their opening game.

Why will the scoreline become important? India are pooled in Group A of the Commonwealth Games. Canada, Wales, England and Ghana are the other four teams in the competition.

Only two teams each from the two Pools will qualify for the semifinals. And if teams are tied on equal number of points, then it is the goals scored that will be taken into account. Hence, it is imperative for India to be at their ruthless best against Ghana.
