Men's hockey team draw with India

5:24 pm on 28 February 2009

New Zealand and India have drawn 1-all in the third men's hockey test in Auckland.

The Indians scored after 12 minutes through Shavendra Singh.

The Black Sticks had a slight edge in possession in the first half but just like the first 2 tests turned the ball over too often.

The New Zealanders intensity and scoring opportunities increased in the second half, but they didn't grab the equaliser until the last 30 seconds when Dean Couzins scored a field goal.

India lead the series 1-nil with the 4th and final test in Auckland tomorrow.
