Black Sticks draw with India

For the fourth straight time the New Zealand women's hockey team has had to come from behind against India, this time to salvage a 2-2 draw in the fourth test in Palmerston North.

The Black Sticks opened the scoring through newcomer Sian Fremaux and it was her that grabbed the draw with 10 minutes to play.

Head coach Mark Hager was disappointed saying their basic skills let them down.

He says they were totally outplayed by India and to be honest they were lucky to come away with a draw.

The last two tests are in Wellington on Friday and Saturday.
