Like the first match, it was India who attacked more in the opening exchanges. Within ten minutes of the first half, Bala Devi almost met Tuli Goon's flag kick and Bembem Devi's free kick from 35 yards went inches wide.

Riffa, Bahrain: India rode on two exquisite strikes from Prameshwori Devi and Kamala Devi in the second half to register their second consecutive win against Bahrain in an international friendly played at the National Football Stadium here on Thursday.

While Prameshwori slotted home a fine left-footer that crashed into the top left corner from an acute angle off a Sasmita Malik corner in the 56th minute, Kamala turned on the heat with her solo effort in the 71st minute, jinking past defenders to unleash a venomous left-footer from 25 yards.

This was Kamala's second goal. She scored one in the first friendly as well.
