Sydney:

India frittered away an early advantage to be held to a 2-2 draw by Australia in their second match in the four-nation men's hockey tournament today. The home team shot into the lead through Jamie Dwyer in the 13th minute but India levelled the scores at the stroke of half-time when Jatinder Pal Singh converted a penalty corner. India then went ahead through Deepak Thakur's field goal in the 61st minute before Trevis Brooks equalised for Australia with 68 seconds left for the final whistle. The injury plagued Indians had suffered a 0-3 defeat against Malaysia in their opening match on Wednesday. In another match, Malaysia beat South Africa 2-1 to record their second consecutive win. In the final round-robin matches on Saturday, Australia will take on Malaysia while India meet South Africa. The final will be played on Sunday. (With PTI inputs)
